We enjoy a tour of delightful Torbay, including visiting Torquay – the English Riviera’s premier resort.

Torquay is a lively resort and home to plenty of seaside attractions, sandy beaches and a charming Victorian appearance. Relatively small until the railway linked the town in the mid-19th century, Torquay rapidly expanded and quickly developed into one of the UK's most popular holiday spots.

We also visit other pretty seaside towns and villages along the way.

P J Barrett, 10 months ago

Our day trips were very well organised by Chris our driver who is a credit to your company, and the coach was very comfortable. The Anchorage hotel accommodation in Babbacombe was good although we felt that the hotel was a little bit remote from the coast unlike the Torbay Hotel [which was fully booked when we tried to book.] We really enjoyed our trip across Dartmoor to Princetown for our cream tea and the weather was excellent enabling us to enjoy the scenery and the lovely ponies!

The holiday was well organised the hotel was a bit old fashioned but clean the only problem for me was the restaurant was self service and as I have difficulty walking this was a bit inconvenient.
