Welcome to the heart of the 'English Riviera'. Trains to Torquay Station arrive next door to the famous Grand Hotel – made famous by Agatha Christie – and within sight of the sands and blue waters that have been bringing people to this resort town since the early 19th century.
Situated across the bay from Torquay's harbour, the station dates back to 1878 and makes an attractive point of arrival, with grey stone walls, pretty canopies, and a colourful footbridge. The ten-minute walk into town takes you along the picturesque seafront, passing Torquay Athletic rugby ground, the historic gardens of Torre Abbey – complete with palm trees, which thrive in the mild climate – and Torre Abbey Sands, Torquay's award-winning golden beach. From here it is a leisurely stroll to the restaurants and bars that line the marina and harbour, and the shopping district along and around Union Street.
Torbay is also home to Cockington Court, Babbacombe, and Brixham.
