If you're a bit rough, don't mind a lot of swearing and probably under the age of 25, you'll like Torquay! I also can't understand the mentality of a lot of men that take their shirt off when the sun comes out...many who definitely shouldn't! The crowds, tourists and young trash definitely ruined Torquay and I would never go back!
Brixham is much nicer and more civilised.

Staying in Babbacome, Torquay last weekend, I didn't realise how much there is to do. We got a bus from quite near our hotel to Torquay town and saw a sign for boat rides to Exeter for just £2 return. Seeing that we were going on to Exeter it seemed silly not to go for it. An over 30 minute ride for £1 !!!!!. Then had cream tea - which everyone visiting should try. Next day bus to Dawlish Warren, then walk along the beach to Dawlish where we got a bus to Teingmouth. I am hoping to go back to have the famous fish and chips in Babbscome. Pity most of shops closed early on Sundays, but did find the Bygones museum open (where we had our cream tea). Looking forward to returning soon.

We parked near Upton and wandered into town (£3 for 3 hrs). Plenty of shops & busy. Seafront was full of amusements but did have a nice shop - Haddon Gallery. Heading down the coast (sea to left) seemed nicer & very English Riviera after Torbay Hotel & the Big Wheel (£5 for 3 spins & interesting commentary). Look forward to seeing Gardens once completed (after the pier / towards Cockington)

Torquay is adjacent to Paignton. It shares the same coastline, sea facing. It is more commercial place as such. I enjoyed Paignton more than Torquay. The bus service from Toquay to Brixham gives you a wonderful insight of the sea front ,shops ,gardens of the town.
