- Product code: PQLMWM
Come along and join one of our breaks to one of Britain’s favourite holiday destinations - on the English Riviera.
Blessed with a balmy climate and famous for it's palm trees, it's easy to see why Torquay has attracted visitors since Victorian times. There is stunning scenery along the coast road and historic towns are dotted throughout the region. Torquay was the birthplace of Agatha Christie with many of her novels drawing inspiration from the town and local landscape. The traditional harbour and stylish Princess Pier marina area offer the town a continental atmosphere, with a growing selection of eateries to sample. Stroll along the attractive waterfront esplanade to the new Abbey Sands leisure development and enjoy al fresco dining or a drink overlooking Torbay. It is certainly worth exploring the newly refurbished Illuminated Royal Terrace Gardens with wonderful views from the top.
First Day After being collected from your local pick up point around 8.30/9.30am we have a comfort stop on route and a break for lunch before arriving at the hotel mid afternoon.

In the morning we head along the coast to Brixham. This authentic fishing port, home to the famous Brixham Trawler, oozes history and its fun to stroll around. Returning to Torquay early afternoon with free time for you to relax in the hotel or explore the town.
