Hellooo!! One of the best things about my ex-workplace was that it was extremely well situated between some lovely places to visit in Devon. One of this places was Torquay. Some of us prefer to go shopping, do yoga or read in order to relax and get rid of the stress. When I feel that I need a break, I travel. Anywhere, no matter how close or far. Me, myself and my phone. Oh and the music. Compulsory:). For more than 1 year, without exaggerating I have been visiting this place for at least once-twice monthly.
But why is Torquay so special? Well, it gives you everything you want to relax. I was usually going there in the morning and coming in the night. Torquay has a lovely beach and paths to walk by the sea.As in Paignton, a lot of seagulls too:).Both it’s worth it. There are also lots of coffee shops and restaurants, really affordable.
Things to do?
Shopping!!! – All type of stores, from family owned to high street ones. It’s impossible to go to Torquay and leave without something.
Living coasts- Penguin or seal lover? Then you have to see this. It’s a must-see of Torquay. As I was saying in my previous post, you can buy a combo ticket if you want to visit Paignton zoo too. But you definitely must visit it.Oh, and if you fancy a coffee,before the entrance, there is a coffee shop, which also sells food. They serve a yummy caramel-latte.
Babbacombe Model Village– suitable for everyone, it is a highly recommended activity to do while you are in Torquay. Please take plenty of time to visit. Both the village and living coasts require time to be fully visited.
Walk. You don’t have to go and do something specifically. Take a book and read by the beach. Admire the view, take photos and walk.Discover every part of Torquay. The good and the bad.
Torquay is a lovely place to go and visit. Escape the routine and try something new. Go and explore it. It has a lot to offer. Pay extra attention in the summer when it is really crowded,to avoid incidents. Overall, it is a highly recommended place to go.
