Mini version of the London eye, beautifully situated to see ocean, harbour and inland views. A little bit pricey for two goes round but the pictures you can take are worth it. Not the easiest to access so watch your step.

£6 pound per person for 2 rides. 12 minutes approximately and great view. Must have when you are in "capital city" of English riviera :)

Great views from the eye of Torquay and beyond, better on a fair weather day and can be breezy but well worth the visit. A nice slow turn to take it all in with basic introduction and several options of recorded talks within the cubicle.
