Language Courses in Torquay, UK

Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times, and it was the Victorians who first named it The English Riviera.  Their influence on the town can still be seen in the white villas they built on the hilltops above the town, the beautiful gardens around the seafront, and the elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.

Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything to be found on the French Riviera.  It's waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you will find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The new Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety of the new waterfront and the illuminated bridge is a great backdrop to a relaxing evening drink. Yet within minutes of the town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea.

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks , with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure.

Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across the Bay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Tors of Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.

Torquay is a place to relax, to soak up the atmosphere, to take in the scenery, the parks and the gardens and to enjoy the experience of a holiday in a classical English seaside resort, at all times of the year.
