The local area
Torquay’s fishing and agricultural industries were the foundation of the early town, although it rose to prominence as a seaside resort in the early part of the 19th century, with the area gaining the nickname the ‘English Riviera’. Torquay retains its value as a tourist draw, while the Torbay area is also a great spot to live for those after a pleasant coastal spot to settle in.
The array of good schools in the area will certainly entice families with younger children, with options at primary level including Ilsham CofE, Shiphay Learning Academy and St Margaret’s Academy. Torquay’s grammar schools for boys and for girls, Westlands School and St Cuthbert Mayne on Trumlands Road are among the secondary choices.
Being on the southwest coast of England means transport links in Torquay aren’t exactly stellar, although it does offer a great location for exploring other parts of the region, such as Dartmouth which can be reached via the A379. The A380 connects Torquay to the national motorway network, while there are trains to Exeter that take around half an hour.
