    Enjoy the English Riviera in Torquay

    A traditional seaside town that sits on a 22-mile stretch of beaches, Torquay is at the heart of the English Riviera. Originally a destination for Victorians seeking mild weather, Torquay is full of historic buildings set along palm tree lined streets. Full of family-friendly attractions, there are many Torquay holiday rentals catering to those with kids, as well as luxury apartments overlooking the sea for romantic weekends. Enjoy an active break in Torquay by taking on the long coastal paths, which give incredible views over the English Channel, or hire a surfboard and enjoy the gentle waves that make the town popular with new surfers.

    Explore Torquay's pre-historic caves

    See what life was like during the Stone Age at Kents Cavern. Hidden deep underground, this network of caves was once home to prehistoric people, and you can see the markings and artefacts that they left behind. Wander through these slightly spooky caves and you'll be able to see all the unique rock features, as well as spotting fossils and stalagmites formed over millions of years ago. Book a Torquay holiday rental and you'll have time to enjoy the coastal walks which begin at the caves, and provide views over the limestone cliffs and across the sea.

    Get close to coastal creatures in Torquay

    Living Coasts gives the humble aquarium a more interactive feel and is set right on Torquay's coast, so you can see creatures in their natural habitat. From penguins and puffins, to otters and seals, you can get up close to the birds, fish and mammals that thrive in the sea. Kids will love feeding time, when curious creatures will often wander into the crowds demanding their dinner. Inside the aquarium, there are vast tanks of exotic fish, including friendly stingrays who like to greet visitors, and even scary sharks which swim just inches away.

    Mild seasonal weather in Torquay

    While Torquay has 4 distinct seasons, it tends to be milder than the rest of the UK's average temperatures. This means Torquay holiday rentals are busy all year round, but especially in July and August when the temperature reaches the low 20s and there's little rain. Spring is a nice time to visit if you're enjoying walks by the coast, with the mercury in the mid-teens and only short bursts of rain. Winter is chilly, but not quite freezing, with snow only occasionally reaching the Devon coast.

    Walk Torquay's stretch of South West Coastal Path

    Torquay is part of the vast South West Coastal Path, which takes you on a loop around Devon, Cornwall and beyond. Labrador Bay has sweeping clifftop views, with flowers and nesting birds looking out over the English Channel. Bays of peaceful shingle beaches can be found below, providing a quiet spot for sunbathing or paddling. Torquay has an excellent choice of beaches, and Babbacombe Beach is one of the most popular. A stretch of golden sand sheltered by a rocky cliff, it has clear blue seas that are popular for swimming in summer.
