About Us

A mile from Torquay harbour and in a stunning location at the bottom of a row of imposing cliffs. Grab a deckchair and enjoy the sound of the sea lapping against the shore, or wander along the promenade lined with a colourful row of beach chalets. A popular beach café can be found here too.
The Agatha Christie Mile

Close to Meadfoot Beach is the Agatha Christie Mile. Stretching along Torquay’s seafront, you can follow in the footsteps of South Devon’s most famous daughter. See where the Queen of Crime used to swim and dance, discover the hotel where she spent her first honeymoon, and learn more about her life and times in Torquay Museum.

With 3.3million visitors every year, the English Riviera is South Devon’s beautiful bay and one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country. With over 20 spectacular beaches, clean and calm waters and lots of attractions, it’s the perfect seaside destination
