Top 5 Things to See and Do Around Torquay Devon

Torquay is a very famous seaside town in Devon – most famous for its association with the classic British comedy Fawlty Towers.

We’re going to be in the area later this year and here are give places that we’d like to check out while we’re visiting.

Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company

This offers up a unique experience for those interested in older forms of travel. You can first ride a steam railway along the coast in Torquay and then you can ride on an old Steam River Boat. Sounds like a lot of fun!

Living Coasts – Torquay

Take a journey around the coasts of the world where amazing plants and animals live life on the edge. At Living Coasts, you’ll see birds and mammals in specially-designed naturalistic habitats. With outdoor and indoor exhibits, there’s plenty to see and do whatever the weather. Sounds really fun!

Home of Agatha Christie

Part of Torbays fascinating past includes the worlds most famous Queen of Crime, writer, Dame Agatha Christie. She was born in the area and lived most of her life and set many of her stories in the area. There’s even a statue of the writer!

Babbacombe Theatre

One of the top theatres in the English Riviera – this is a great place to take in a play. The theatre was just refurbished to the highest standard. Perfect if you have Torquay hotel accommodation and can stay out late in the evenings and enjoy a night out on the town.

Berry Pomeroy Castle in Totnes

Located in nearby Totnes, Devon Berry Pomeroy Castle is about two and a half miles from Totnes bridge, by a very uphill road is one of the best known and probably the most picturesque of Devon’s Castles. I love a good castle ruin – so we’ll definitely stop by!
