The Town of Torquay:
On The Map: Torquay is a coastal resort town located in Devon, in the southwest of England.
Torquay is the quintessential English seaside town. Set in the heart of the ‘English Riviera’ (so known for its warm, temperate climate), the town boasts wonderful sandy beaches, a vibrant atmosphere, and picturesque Victorian appearance. Initially a fishing village, Torquay became a major tourist draw in the 19th century, after gaining popularity as a holiday destination among the elite of Victorian society. Torquay boasts many attractions and unique features. Kent’s Cavern is undoubtedly Britain’s most important cave, with evidence of human and animal occupation over a 500,000 year period. The Cavern is the only place in the world to yield evidence from all three types of human: Homo Heidelbergensis, Neanderthal and Homo Sapien. Babbacombe Model Village and 800 year-old Torre Abbey are also well worth some time during your visit to Torquay. Torquay was the home of the world famous writer Agatha Christie, during her early years, and you can tour the ‘Agatha Christie Mile”, which features plaques dedicated to her life and work. Be sure to also enjoy a walk along the promenade, while soaking up the laid-back atmosphere of this pretty beach town!
