“A lovely place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

The harbour is quaint and has retained its character over the years. Known for its fresh fish the local restaurants make good use of this and there are many to tempt the palate

“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Plenty to see and do for all ages...over priced either. Personally the only thing I didn't like was smell of rotting fish guts, but that was only when we had to queue on quay and wait for boat trip.

“Home of my heart!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Been coming here most years since 1980. yes 34 years. Its one of my favourite places in the world, at any time of year. You have everything here, the harbour, beaches, pubs, eateries, just has character and friendliness coming out the walls.
Personally, its well and truly in my blood, and feel that it may become additive to readers too.
If you're staying in Torquay, then the big advice is to take the ferries across the bay (possibly cheapest in the world? any challenge to this? Erm ONE POUND each way.
Try the ferries round to Dartmouth too.

Just one blot on the horizon: PARKING
If Torbay council are reading this then please take note. There are hundreds of businesses and thousands of people working very hard here, and there really is no need to fleece visitors and locals alike on the car park charges. It will backfire on you, especially after this years 20% hike.
For some, the park and rides are just not suitable. And try opening the public toilets later than 18:00.
PLAY FAIR!!!!
