Welcome to Torquay, a traditional yet thriving seaside town set on Devon's English Riviera coast.  If you haven't visited for a while, then banish those thoughts of a resort that has seen its hey day.... the best is yet to come. With its iconic palm trees, busy harbour, international marina, sandy beach and wonderful array of continental style cafes, restaurants and cocktail bars, the scene is set for the perfect Devon seaside holiday or short break.

This quintessential bucket and spade resort appeared in The Guardian in late 2016, being described as one of "Britain's most booming seaside towns, undergoing a style revival with Michelin starred restaurants and swanky yachts"!  You only have to drive along the seafront or take a stroll along the promenade to know that this is true.
