Exploring The Area of Torquay

Torquay History
When you say the English Riviera, you know you are getting the best resort you can have with attractions that will appeal to any age group or interests. The English Riviera was first used during the Victorian times to name their favourite resort. At this period in history, the nobility went to Torquay to enjoy the beach.  There were bathing huts that were brought down to the beaches and the aristocrats built beautiful villas that overlooked the sea. This continues to be enjoyed today at Torquay with beautiful gardens and shimmering white villas dotting the lush hilltops and elegant Victorian structures visible along its main streets. Torquay continues to progress and bring in guests who enjoy this seaside resort together with its vibrant art and culture scene.
