Did you know...a Torquay hotel inspired the British comedy Fawlty Towers?
Blue Flag beaches and a warm year-round climate have enticed visitors to indulge in Torquay for decades. Famed as the birthplace of Agatha Christie, Torquay continues to charm guests of all ages year after year. Nicknamed the ‘English Riviera’ by the Victorians, Torquay combines relaxed family cafes and restaurants, all-weather attractions and a lively nightlife.
Torquay’s waterfront forms the town’s hub, and merges the past and present as uniquely as the town itself. Visitors can admire stunning, unaltered sea views, visit the nearby family attractions or relax in the waterside bars.
Agatha Christie fans can follow in the crime author’s footsteps by completing the Agatha Christie Mile, a walk incorporating Torquay landmarks relevant to her life and work.
