This is a small station and not many staff on, nothing to clear either for ways of maybe getting hold of a taxi, its a free for all outside the station.

“Torquay Railway station,has a lot of old fashioned charm to it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Torquay Railway station,is one of those old fashioned railway stations which to me,look like it had been built during the Victorian era.AS another TripAdvisor reviewer has point out,two main tracks does separate the two main platforms.The first platform is mainly use for incoming trains and the second platform for outgoing trains.
To get onto the second platform you have to walk over a bridge to get to it once you come into railway station itself.
I was only there for about 20 minutes when i arrived into Torquay for my Holiday Break.I cant comment on the toilet facilities as i didn't use them.I did however buy a weekend paper from the cafe that is there.
The taxi rank is parked outside,where taxis of the locality pull up.
My tripadvisor advisor is make sure before you travelling to torquay to get a list of local taxi company phone nos.That way when you arrive,you can phone one of them when you arrive at Torquay Railway station,especially if you have a lot of luggage or a heavy case.

“A Station with history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Torquay's station has a lot of charm and remains mainly unchanged from that bygone era,Two tracks separate the two platforms,One incoming and one outgoing.It's easy to imagine how many famous people may have used this station to get to Torquay at the turn of the century.

An inexpensive way of seeing the coastline, stunning views and shopping in Exeter too boot. Hassle free and totally relaxing, even the kids will love it.

“Poor station”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I spent 2 days in Torquay and travelled from and to Paddingdon, found the station a bit of a let down for the town. Whatever you do, don't use the toilets or have a hot drink from the cafe !!!
