Torquay lies 26 km (16 miles) south of Exeter along the A380 road on the north of Torbay and adjoins the neighbouring town of Paignton on the west of the bay.

In the 19th century Torquay became a fashionable seaside resort. Renowned for its healthy climate, it earned the nickname of the English Riviera.

Torquay is situated on the South West coast of England, forming one third of Torbay and is primarily on the western side of the bay.

Torquay is also set along a coastline renowned for its beaches, having no fewer than nine popular beaches. The high standards of water quality and beach facilities mean that many carry coveted awards, including no fewer than three European Blue Flags - more than any other resort in the UK. There are nine main beaches in Torquay, a string of nine beautiful beaches and coves stretched out along the palm lined coast.
