A Classic English Riviera Love Affair
Places to see in Torquay
Since the very birth of British Tourism, the pretty towns and meandering coastline of South Devon have endeared the area to countless visitors. Running from Torquay and Paignton to Brixham, the very title “English Riviera” lends a clue to the region’s privileged position. Indeed, with its own microclimate, the area can often feel positively Mediterranean. Palm trees, unique Devon attractions and architecture influenced by Continental Europe further enhance an exotic feel loved by generations of visitors.
