The Torwood area of Torquay is just a short walk up from Torquay harbour. With the advantage of being close to both the harbour and town centre it is one of the best locations for a stay on The English Riviera. It is where our Bedford House Apartments are and where our Lisburne Place Town House is.
Most things such as restaurants, bars and cafes are within an easy walk of the apartments and for guests visiting for a show at The Princess Theatre it is a very convenient location.
Torquay Museum is just a three or four minute away from The Bedford House Apartments and a five minute walk from the Lisburne Place Town House and it is a great place to explore at all times of the year.
Its temporary exhibitions are particularly worth seeing. It is the only museum in the country with a dedicated Agatha Christie Gallery.
It also has an Explorers Gallery which features artefacts relating to colonel Percy Fawcett the inspiration behind Indiana Jones.
Opposite the Museum is Torwood Gardens, a wonderful space to take a gentle stroll particularly if you have a four legged friend with you.
This bowling centre is just a stone's throw from Torquay harbour and is only a short walk from both The Bedford House Apartments & The Lisburne Place Town House.
This is a great place for families to let off steam and really get into the competitive spirit particularly if the weather means that outside activities are not possible.
And once you have finished your final strike, there are plenty of nearby bars, cafes and restaurants for refreshments.
Near the harbour (and beyond the traffic lights) where Babbacombe Road becomes Torwood Street there a large number of restaurants & takeaways.
With everything from Indian, Vietnamese, Greek/ Turkish, Italian, Thai and American not forgetting English Fish and chips there is almost literally a World of Food close to The Bedford House Apartments & The Lisburne Place Town House.
This area also has a choice of bars including Pubs with Sky such as The Clocktower & The Apple & Parrot. Tucked up a side turning is The Hole in The Wall - reputed to be Torquay's oldest pub.
For those wanting a more sophisticated ambience, the new Torwood Street Development is now home to Elton's Piano Bar.
At the bottom of Torwood Street is Torquay harbour which many say has a continental feel.
Clustered around the harbour are dozens of places to eat and drink and to while away a few hours people watching. And for the youngsters there is the ever popular pursuit of crab fishing.
For the more adventurous, there are a whole host of watersports on offer.
