A little bit of history
Torbay offers an excellent quality of life in a unique geographical setting with plenty of beaches and a warm climate. It is made up of three towns - Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Looking over the beautiful Tor Bay in South Devon, each of these three towns has their own separate characteristics.
The resort is one of the most popular visitor destinations in the country and has a wealth of outdoor, cultural and leisure opportunities for residents and visitors. It is close to Dartmoor National Park, Cornwall and other areas of outstanding natural beauty, whilst still being near to other metropolitan areas.
