“Great spot - hope the wheel will return!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

In the excellent commentary that went with our trip on the Big Wheel it mentioned the various improvements Torbay is now making to its attractions and gardens, which are so important for it to keep its place as the leading Holiday Resort in the South West.

Certainly the Promenade area is already much improved and the Mayor has been pro-active in rebuilding the area that was crumbling away; also his predecessor was responsible in the reconstruction of the Rock Walk and Royal Terrace Gardens which are also great assets.

As a local I feel that sometimes I do not fully appreciate all Torbay has to offer, but was made more aware of this and the lovely surroundings when I took a trip in the Big Wheel that has been a further attraction in recent months.

Although this is only here temporarily I hope will be returning and understand this should be the case, as from it there are great views across the town and Bay to the surrounding countryside which helps one realise just what a wonderful place Torbay is.

NO I haven’t written this review sponsored by the local Tourist board, just as someone who lives locally and often enthuses about other areas, but perhaps fails to appreciate what is on his own doorstep.

“Big wheel”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

We took a ride on the big wheel fantastic views accross Torquay. Wonderful on a clear day and I am sure just as good when it is dark. The price of £5 per adult was very good, you could even hire out a whole cabin. There was a commentry as you went round describing all you see and some interesting facts about the area. Well worth the money even if like us your not too keen on heights !!!

We arrived in sunshine and the gardens were a picture. They were obviously so well tended and had been benefiting from the rain, which fortunately stayed away for our visit!

“In good condition”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Always cleaned every day and litter picked. Foreign language students did leave a terrible mess of litter every night, but full marks to the maintenance team as every morning they were cleaned by 9am. Always picturesque with the flower beds
