Torbay known as The English Riviera is a beautiful resort. The three Riviera towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham surround the natural sheltered Bay which forms an ideal suntrap, and boasts many Blue Flag beaches. Each town lends its own individual character and each are well worth the visit.
The Torbay area first gained a reputation as a destination for relaxation and convalescence, during the Napoleonic Wars in the late 18th century. Its romantic location and fantastic weather were praised by families of naval officers stationed in the bay. It was the Victorians however, that labeled Torbay as being the 'English Riviera', likening the area to its French equivalent. The cultivation of sub tropical plants as well as the famous Torbay Palm has certainly added to the Mediterranean ambiance. Torquay's waterfront offers a palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The new Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety, and the illuminated bridge is an excellent backdrop to a relaxing evening drink.
