Only stayed one night, Torquay was very disappointing, the sea front was spoiled by a travelling fun fair in the abbey grounds,the hotels And streets were in a real scruffy state not what you expect for a holiday resort.

We found it very quiet & not much in the way of shopping - sight seeing options if you want them but they were not for us

Just beautiful when the sun shines, who needs to go abroad when you have scenery and palm trees like this in our country, just gorgeous.
