A beautiful building

I have read the reviews for this and fully agree such a wonderful beautiful building needs to be used. It's part of the heritage of tourquay and the UK so let see something happen

If torbay council do not do something urgently to secure the pavilions future they will regret there decision for years to come. This iconic building could be saved and must be saved for future generations. As a major seaside resort surely they must notice how important this wonderful magnificent building is. Blackpool council have secured the future of their two... More

Torbay Council in its wisdom have allowed this building to close. It is apparently up for sale although there did not appear to be any signs to say so. This building has so much historic significance to Torquay seafront and is now abandoned. Surely the council could have preserved this as part of the heritage of Torquay. Will it be... More

This used to be a gem but over the years of massive under-investment by our Council, they have finaly decided to sell it all off. It is now part of a vision which will see massive investment into the harbourside, but I doubt any locals other than those on the Council will see any benefit from the end result.

This is a really lovely old building which has never been used tto its full potential. But it is a real shame to hear it will be closing in the New Year. Torbay Council really need to ensure this site is developed before it becomes a derelict eyesore which is right on the harbour side in Torquay. The Palm Court... More

Sadly the Pavilion, which was built as a place to be seen in during the heyday of Torquay's past glory years, will be closing in early January 2013 and no one seems to know how or even if it will be redeveloped.

I went into this building thinking it had many shops in it wrong. It was like being at a jumble sale. Only saving grace was the exhibition about Torquay in the past. Told through Postcards, letters, photos etc

Head upstairs and if the weather is fine grab a table on the balcony overlooking the harbour and then tuck in to some magnificent tapas. Great olive dish. Fantastic prawns (harrissa sauce), Stuffed peppers and rustic breads. Very good coffee or local ales to wash it all down. Time seems to float away, very relaxing.

Whilst staying in Torquay, we had a look inside the Pavilion. It was more or less empty, apart from a couple of little units, and an interesting display about the history of the building. Bought some lovely little presents to take home. Didn't visit the cafe upstairs, but it looked it's quite popular. Noticed a artist by the entrance, doing... More
