Coach holidays with Alfa Travel

Devon Cornwall Metropole Hotel

Resort - Torquay

Overview

Torquay is one of Britain's most famous resorts, situated at the heart of 22 miles of unspoilt coastline, often referred to as the "English Riviera". It has a mild climate, sparkling blue waters and in its beautiful public gardens you will see subtropical plants and palm trees. Torquay has something to offer everyone: by day you can relax on one of the clean sandy beaches, explore the bustling harbour and marina and the excellent shops or if you are feeling more active there are lovely walks, or activities such as sailing, bowls, golf or fishing. By night you'll be spoilt for choice: there are theatres, night clubs, cabarets and discothèques and of course you'll see the lights illuminating the promenade reflected across the beautiful bay. The many local attractions include Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village, Kent's Cavern, Torbay Steam Railway and Cockington thatched village. Torquay’s harbour-side has recently been redeveloped and features Living Coasts, a fascinating wildlife attraction adjacent to the Regina Hotel.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Outward Travel

Day 2 - Looe & Polperro

  • Straddling the Looe River, this archetypal Cornish harbour town changes dramatically as the tides wax and wane.
  • The old Guildhall is the oldest building in the town, circa 1500, and houses the local museum (entry fees may apply).
  • Jutting out to sea is the banjo pier, so called for its shape, which was unique at the time of its construction.
  • The busy little harbour of Polperro was once a hive of smuggling, well organised to the point of having its own bank!
  • Local artefacts and the works of local artists are displayed at the Harbour Heritage Museum (entry fee may apply).
  • There are still a dozen or so fishing boats landing cod, monkfish, scallops, crabs and flat fish at Polperro.

Day 3 - Day at Leisure

Day 4 - Exmouth & Sidmouth

  • Devon's original coastal resort has an excellent local museum and Blue Plaque Trail.
  • Nelson, Shelly, Byron and Raleigh all visited Exmouth for rest and inspiration.
  • Manor Park Gardens are well kept with spectacular decorative borders, a café and occasional entertainment.
  • Regular visitors to this select resort included Princess Victoria before she became Queen.
  • An interesting local museum (free entry) nestles amid the Regency architecture.
