The warmest of welcomes awaits you on the English Riviera.

Life in Torbay

As a place, there's nowhere quite like Torbay. The English Riviera has first class beaches, miles of stunning coastline and a climate to be envied. We're a hugely cultural corner of the UK, with heritage everywhere you look. And we have UNESCO Geopark status given to sites and landscapes of international significance.

Torbay can offer an unrivalled quality of life for individuals and families – our natural environment, clean air, climate, location, excellent schools, growing arts and cultural sector, and wide range of outdoor activities, means this area provides everyone with the opportunity to live a healthy and fulfilled life.

In Torquay, Paignton and Brixham you'll find everything from the glorious English seaside, watersports and nightlife, to outstanding restaurants, theatres and even a zoo.

The rugged beauty and isolation of Dartmoor National Park is a huge draw for outdoor lovers. Full of history and folklore, with its granite tors, stone circles and ancient villages, it was the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle’s Hound of the Baskervilles and is only a short distance away.
