Torquay is the jewel in the Torbay crown and has seen a lot of investment in recent years, with more attractions, inner harbour and slip way renovations, the introduction of Living Coasts and a plethora of great dining and harbour side cafés. The latest news indicates that the new shape of Torquay is attracting inward investment from luxury hotel chains, which can only boost its popularity further and a return year on year of the very popular wheel, seen at the London Olympics. Hesketh Crescent however is a quiet haven in the most sought after part of Torbay, yet within easy striking distance of all amenities. It has the best of all worlds!
The English Riviera - The perfect choice:
The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year!
Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.
It was the Victorians who first used the English Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day with sparkling white villas perched on the verdant hilltops, beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.
Don't be fooled by the Victorian ancestry however, Torquay is also a vibrant and forward thinking resort attracting visitors of all interests, from Art and Culture aficionados to marine enthusiasts.
Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything you'll find on the French Riviera.
There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure
Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.
