Torquay is one of Britain's most famous resorts, situated at the heart of
22 miles of unspoilt coastline known as the "English Riviera" because of its
mild climate, sparkling blue waters, blue-flag beaches, attractive gardens and
palm tree lined seafront.
Torquay has been fashionable since Victorian times and is the former home
of Elizabeth Barrett Browning as well as crime author Agatha Christie. It offers
variety, day and night, from its bustling harbour and marina to its exclusive
shops, sophisticated restaurants and bars. Torquay's spectacular modernised
waterfront provides a continental atmosphere with its attractive cafes and
shops, luxury yachts and beautiful footbridge across the inner harbour.
The heart of the town is the harbour which has many shops along its edges.
The town is hilly but the location of the Regina Hotel is on the flat harbourside
and the shops, promenade and Pavilion Theatre are all a level walk from here.
BEACH & GARDENS
Torbay has excellent bathing beaches at Babbacombe, Torre Abbey
and Paignton. Torre Abbey Gardens make a pleasant walk along the
seafront from the hotel.

high standards throughout our hotels: clean
