Torre Abbey - a short walk from The Ellington Court Apartment

Torre Abbey

Sitting right on Torquay seafront is Torre Abbey. This building has been there for over 1000 years and has witnessed and been part of extrordinary change in all that time. It started as a religious community, then became a family home before changing into a municipal art gallery and museum. The Abbey features a fabulous walled garden with a poison section in honour of Agatha Christie, Torquay's most famous resident. There are also beautiful glass houses with palms and succulents.

Torre Abbey Sands

Torquay's main beach is Torre Abbey Sands. This is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike.

The beach disappears at high tide but as the tide goes out a vast area of sand is exposed. The sea is shallow here and it is a safe place for families to enjoy a day building sandcastles by the sea.

Just behind the beach is the Abbey Sands development with cafes, bars, coffee shops, restaurants and a traditional fish and chip takeaway. 

On the promenade just above the beach are toilets and a beach shop.

Torquay seafront and promenade - Princess Gardens

Torquay Promenade

Torquay's main seafront promenade begins at the Tor Abbey Sands Development and works its way along to the harbour and town centre.

At the heart of this area is The Princess Theatre and the Princess Gardens where there are seasonal attractions such as winter lights, a French Market and the big observation wheel.

Closer to Torquay harbour is the marina from which visitors can embark ferry services taking them across the Bay to Brixham. Many of these are operated by Western Lady Ferry Services.
