Torquay is a town on the south coast of Devon which was formed from the amalgamation of three different boroughs; Torquay, Brixham, and Paignton. Also known as the English Riviera because of its warm climate, Torquay first became a popular holiday destination in the Victorian era.

Torquay Railway Station is on Rathmore Road and was first opened in 1859. The station was rebuilt in 1878 and extended in 1912, and it still serves the town today. The station was granted a Grade II Listed Building status, in 1986, in recognition of its architectural heritage.

Things to do in Torquay

Torquay’s stone-age legacy includes evidence of the oldest modern humans in Europe dating back 40,000 years. The Roman Empire also reached Devon, so there is plenty of local history to be found in this seaside town. The Torquay Museum has several local historical exhibits waiting to be discovered if you’re interested in the past.

We don’t know how much the Romans may have enjoyed the beautiful local beaches around Torquay, but the Victorians certainly did; In the late 1800s they discovered the joys of the English seaside and so there is nothing to stop you from making the most of them too when you visit. Torre Abbey Sands is the main beach in Torquay and is perfect for families, holidaymakers and swimmers.

Torquay Railway Station is perfectly located only minutes from the beach, and throughout the area, you can enjoy everything from jet-skis and powerboat rides to canoeing and kayaking. A little further east of the beach is the harbour and original quay from where the town takes its name.

Torquay pottery has developed a reputation over the years, and wares made from the local clay are popular with tourists as well as luxury retailers. It has even been sold by Liberty of London in the past. Visit the many pottery shops and find the perfect souvenir to remember your visit.

Torquay has also been home to some notable figures over the years. Agatha Christie, the world’s most translated novelist, was born here in 1890. The area provided inspiration for several of her novels . For example, her 1936 novel ‘The ABC Murders’ includes Elberry Cove and Princess Gardens. You can experience being in one of her novels yourself and follow the clues in the Agatha Christie Literary Trail all around town.

Don’t forget to take advantage of all the other entertainment, nightlife, shopping and restaurants while you are in town. Torquay has something for everyone.

There is lots more to find and experience in this Devonshire town, so book your journey with CrossCountry today.
