Having reviewed the Pavilion before, I felt duty bound to let Torquay Borough Council that visitors to the resort are still waiting for this beautiful old building to be restored to its former glory. It seems that it has been masked now by the big wheel bought in as a tourist attraction. Please TBC find a use for this beautiful... More

The building is nice-looking, and has a distinctive style of architecture. It was nice to have a quick look whilst passing, but I would be more impressed if the site was put to some meaningful use - particularly in relation to tourism.

Please save this building for the future. This building like Brighton Pavilion reflects a history gone by. A beautiful building people grew up with and see everyday. Isn't that just a perfect reason to protect it. Great Britain is a nation of artists they are strong be strong and save this beautiful building.

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.

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
