6 Day Select Holiday

Torquay is a seaside resort in Devon, on the English Channel. It has a sandy beach, palm trees, bustling harbour, international marina, and continental style cafes. As part of the English Riviera, this elegant town has been accredited by UNESCO as a Global Geopark in recognition of its outstanding natural beauty and geology with rocks dating back millions of years. Enjoy a boat trip around the stunning coastline or 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 twelfth century monastery 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 boardwalk is where she roller-skated in her youth. Elsewhere, you might like to explore award-winning Babbacombe Model Village where you’ll find miniature scenes of Britain through the decades. Guests choosing the Devonshire Hotel will enjoy a restful overnight stop en route to Torquay.
