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.
