An Introduction

Torquay is where the programme 'Faulty Towers' was supposed to have been. Torquay is split up into three regions: Mary Church, Babbacomb & Torquay itself. There's lot's to see at Torquay & plenty of places to stay, Torquay has a museum which I'll mention later. Torquay had a wonderful harbour fronted by lot's of gift shops & cafes. There's two shopping centre's & hundred's of shops which will be listed, there's also parts of torquay that the tourist doesn't know about, but soon will.

There's also the modal village & Bygone's museum, you have to visit to see what I mean.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great in the summer, good cafes
  • Cons:Rough at night
  • In a nutshell:Like the South of Franch
