Torquay stands on the hills overlooking the harbour. Palm trees, yachts and waterskiers give the place an almost Mediterranean feel in summer.

Torquay’s waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you’ll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina.

Torquay was Agatha Christie’s hometown and Torquay Museum houses an exhibition dedicated to her life and work. A visit to her home Greenway is possible by road to Kingswear or by boat from the River Dart.
