About Us

Soaring high over the beautiful harbour in the heart of the English Riviera at Torquay, the wheel is situated within the famous Pavilion Gardens, next to The Princess Theatre, enjoying amazing views of the town and harbour.

The English Riviera Wheel is completely silent in operation incorporating the latest in observation wheel technology and design. A trip on the wheel takes approximately 12 minutes. Each gondola is enclosed for safety and comfort whatever the weather.

Step into one of the wheel's gondolas and be transported into the air. Gaze out over the skyline and see the surrounding area with a wonderous view in every direction. Fun, thrills, geography and history - all rolled into one!

With breathtaking 360 degree views almost 60 metres above The Princess Gardens. The Wheel offers a birds eye view of the English Riviera overlooking Torquay Harbour from a rare perspective. A ride on the Wheel is the perfect location for a special day out for everyone.
