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 while enjoying traditional fish and chips. Amateur sleuths may want 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 boat trips to the seaside towns of Paignton and Brixham or steam rail journeys to Dartmouth will also make for a delightful excursion.
