Torquay & The English Riviera
5 Day Coach Holiday
Torquay has an enviable seafront, beautiful beaches and a stylish marina. As part of the English Riviera, this graceful South Devon town has been accredited by UNESCO as a Global Geopark in recognition of its astonishing landscape and geology with rocks dating back millions of years. Visitors can follow in the footsteps of Stone Age Man at Kents Cavern, a spectacular cave network where you can step back to when this labyrinth was home to ancient humans. Perhaps visit Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196 with art galleries and an Agatha Christie inspired Potent Plants Garden featuring flora from the local writer’s novels. This holiday haven also has a museum with an exhibition dedicated to Agatha Christie and the Princess Pier promenade is where she roller-skated in her youth. Elsewhere, you might like to explore award-winning Babbacombe Model Village where you’ll find miniature houses and people displayed with a splash of humour and a soupçon of history.
