Overview:

The sparkling jewel of the English Riviera, Torquay exudes a continental feel with luxury yachts bobbing in the harbour, golden beaches, swaying palm trees, elegant street facades and exotic gardens. Be sure to see Kents Cavern, a spectacular cave network that you’ll find just a short walk from Meadfoot Beach. Elsewhere, you might like to explore award-winning Babbacombe Model Village where you’ll find miniature houses and people displayed with more than a touch of humour and a soupçon of history. Speaking of times past, Torre Abbey Historic House & Gardens is a lovingly preserved medieval monastery with a fine gatehouse and abbot’s tower set in glorious grounds and are well worth a visit. Enjoy an al fresco cuppa at the Quayside or perhaps stroll along popular Princess Pier promenade where Agatha Christie roller-skated in her youth. Don’t miss Torquay Museum with its exhibition dedicated to the aforementioned Queen of Crime! Guests staying at the Richmond Hotel on our leisurely pace holiday will enjoy a dinner, bed and breakfast stop in the heart of England on the outward journey.
