Groupon’s Guide To Torquay
Occupying a convenient location on the coast, Torquay allures travellers with its bustling harbour, famous palms and yellow sands of the English Riviera.
Visitors are invited to take a walk through the local beaches and coves, or make their way down to Torquay harbour front to gaze at the passing boats with some traditional fish and chips. Amateur sleuths may like to investigate the biography of crime writer and Torquay-native Agatha Christie, details of whose life and works may be followed across the “Agatha Christie Mile” tour of informative plaques. Daily boating trips to the seaside towns of Paignton and Brixham or steam rail journeys to Dartmouth will also make for a delightful excursion.
