Self-guided walking pack and two packed lunches - Included
Included walking pack with three self-guided walks in the local area plus packed lunches on two days.
Riviera Line & Agatha Christie Mile - Optional
Take an easy walk around Torquay's centre discovering the history of the place and finding out about its most famous resident, Agatha Christie. You'll pass a number of significant places in the writer's life, the Grand Hotel, where she honeymooned, Torre Abbey, containing her favourite armchair and typewriter and the Imperial Hotel which inspired a number of locations in her books.
Coves & Cliffs Babbacombe - Optional
Discover the coves and cliffs along the coast in Babbacombe. You'll discover an ever changing landscape of steep cliffs and hidden coves which have been formed over the years through a mixture of natural erosion and dynamite being used in mining. There's also great history here, with people using these coves as cover for smuggling, mining their rocks and bathing. Why not choose to come back via the beautiful restored cliff railway?
Sharkham Park & Berry Head - Optional
Discover both of Brixham's headlands on this walk, with spectacular views over Tor Bay. Along the way you'll see some unusual plant life that grows here due to the limestone grasslands. In terms of fauna at various times of year you can see migrant birds, with skua, terns and petrels and dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks.Back to top
