Torquay is second only to Blackpool in terms of English seaside popularity, but with its balmy climate, palm trees, and yacht marina it has something of a continental atmosphere. Despite its sobriquet of “English Riviera” it is still a traditional bucket-and-spade resort with several excellent beaches. On a rainy day go underground to Kent's Cavern, a well-interpreted, important ancient site. Nearby is the Model Village, an outstanding piece of landscape gardening and design in miniature. Torre Abbey in the centre of Torquay now houses the municipal art gallery and a museum with a special focus on the town's most famous citizen Agatha Christie. To the west is the picturesque village of Cockington. The scenic Babbacombe Downs cliff top is the highest promenade in the country and is part of the South West Coast Path walk. On a clear day you can enjoy breathtaking views of Lyme Bay as far as Portland Bill in Dorset almost 80 miles away by road. Take the fantastic 240ft journey down to Oddicombe Beach on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway, which has been operating since 1926. This blue flag beach has all the usual beach facilities and is an ideal place for sun worshipers to spend the day soaking up the sun. Just a short 5-minute walk along the coastline is the pretty Babbacombe beach, an ideal place to enjoy a refreshing drink from the Cary Arms pub whilst enjoying the coastal views along Babbacombe Bay.
