Shame! After being closed three years in December 2015, is our lovely Pavilion being left to deteriorate?

I walked by this wonderful building. It looked absolutely fantastic and exhibits fine architecture. Unfortunately it was closed at the time but makes a great backdrop for pictures.

Well here we are in 2016 and it would appear that we are still waiting for ANY news about about this wonderful building. How much longer have we to wait?

I was dismayed in April to see the Pavilion closed. It was a good place to go on rainy days, with some interesting shops. A bookshop sold Torquay guide books and other interesting books, there was a nice shoe shop, linens shop, delicatessen and large restaurant on the top floor with an outside balcony for sunny days. What is the... More

Lovely building but it's a real shame it's been left to decay in this way. We will watch with keenness to see what happens to it.

Singulr, as Holmes would have said! Spacious, airy, unique building with a fascinating history. It's sad that profitable uses cannot be found for it these days. Its would be tragic to lose this iconic feature of the town.

Like most of the reviews it's a beautiful old place to mooch around. The outside is well maintained and the area quite lovely. As with all old buildings it just needs lots of tlc so that my grandchildren get the chance to see this old pavilion in years to come. Well worth a visit.

A wonderful building that is being neglected, if only we could find out what is going to happen to it. I only hope that something will be done before it falls into more disrepair. Come on TBC let us know

The area in and around the Pavilion are really nice. There are Green areas available if you want to relax on the grass, within 2 minute walking distance of restaurants (the offshore restaurant was where we ate) and ice cream vendors, plus you have the Ferris wheel in this area. The princess pier is also a great spot for a... More
