More Pictures of Torquay
Yes - Torquay is famous for the Palm trees - sorry no movie stars to go with them.
There is an excellent quote from Fawlty Towers when Basil is talking to a couple from California:
"we do have palm trees in torquay you know"
Torquay was once a thriving fishing area, however since Victorian times has relied more on tourism.
Fishing does still play an important role in the life of many people who live in Torquay.
"Torquay's new foot bridge"
Anther view of the foot bridge over the inner harbour - this one was taken by my Mum and features my Dad!
More boats in the Marina
The Living Coast attraction is along from the Strand and across from the inner harbour.
See main Torquay tips for more information.
"Evening or daytime boat trip"
There are many boat trip rides you can get in and around the Torbay area, some of them let you visit the different areas or let you see the coastline at night.
