Babbacombe Model Village

Hampton Ave, Torquay TQ1 3LA, UK – 01803 315315

An excellent attraction in Devon. Heard about this place from friends and local tourist information whilst on holiday, so was eager to visit. Upon entering, was amazed at the size of the village! The landscaping and attention to detail is outstanding and there was so much to look at and take in. Over 3 hours was spent here to look at every part of this village, including the small and humourus additions to each varied scene, and the visual & sound effects on selected models. It was great to see new developments of model areas, such as the new city development for 2018; a clever and brilliant addition to this attraction! The cafe, 4D experience and golf was not visited so cannot comment on these sections. Overall, a very enjoyable attraction and a must if visiting the local area or visiting Devon! Would recommend to anyone and will definitely return.

Exceeded my expectations. Amazing models with such a variety there is something for everyone. Gardens truly splendid and so well looked after. Took a picnic for outdoor benches so didn't try restaurant. Entrance is quite pricey, but spent a good 2 to 3 hours there and it is a beautiful place to be. Moving models with audio, and quirky humour added all add to the interest.

Torquay's Dinosaur World

3 Victoria Parade, Torquay TQ1 2BB, UK – 01803 298779

Unassuming frontage, but once inside we were greeted by friendly staff who gave us a fun quiz to do and told us how to find the dinosaurs our son could climb on. Plenty of exhibits and fun facts relating to them. It took about an hour to get round, which for the low price was good value. All in all couldn't fault it. Will return in the future. Thank you for a good experience!

Kids loved it, the adults gave each other a few raised eyebrows regarding the some of the displays, and how tight we were all packed in, but ultimately my kids and all the kids there had a ball, and that's worth a lot. The staff approached the children with dinosaur facts and were having fun too, and the kids are allowed to touch some of the displays, which is admirable. I would suggest making the adult tickets slightly cheaper as it really isn't one for the big kids. You might not rush to go back regularly, but its worth a visit, especially for the under 6s

Boat Moorings & Marinas

Torquay Marina

Vaughan Rd, Torquay TQ2 5EQ, UK – 01803 200210

Excellent marina and staff, location perfect for relaxation with secluded cove's within easy reach. Nightlife second to none with endless possibilities, great dining and live entertainment within 200yds of the Dock office. As quiet or lively as required.

The staff and berth holders at MDL Marina in Torquay couldn't have given us a warmer welcome. They've given us so much useful advice and always have a smile on their faces. A lovely marina in an unbeatable setting!

Torquay Harbour

Beacon Hill, Torquay TQ1 2BG, UK – 01803 292429

Nice place to wonder around. Some super boats parked up. Plenty of every thing coffee shops, boat trips, pubs, and eateries. Serviced by plenty of busses. Spent a nice few hours there. Walking, coffee stops and out along the harbour wall.

A picturesque corner of Torquay from where you can grab a day trip out to see the seaside or a ferry over to Brixham. Plenty of bars, restaurants and gift shops surround the harbour so you can fine whilst watching the boats. It's also right on the edge of Torquay town centre so you can go shopping if you wish, or catch a bus to other parts of Torbay

Royal Torbay Yacht Club

12 Beacon Hill, Torquay TQ1 2BH, UK – 01803 292006

I Love Royal Torbay Yacht Club. What a fantastic and friendly club, full of great people and welcoming members. Sailing events are extremely well managed and the facilities are fantastic. Visit for a championship or pop in and sit in the garden for a drink as the sun goes down. Many thanks for your hospitality.

Just had a Sunday lunch at the yacht club. The menu was varied and catered for my vegetation fiancee. The food took a little while to come out but can be expected when cooked from fresh. Highley recommend!

Local Parks & Gardens

Torwood Gardens

Torwood Gardens Rd, Torquay TQ1 1EG, UK – 01803 207797

A lot of benches to sit on and plenty of grass to have picnic on. The only downside is that it's close to a main road so it's not really a "peaceful" park but if you live nearby then it's a good place to walk your dogs.

Tessier Gardens

Lindridge Rd, Torquay TQ1 3SD, UK

What a wonderful little hidden park. Very quiet, peaceful & picturesque. And a little cat that is really friendly.

A lovely, peaceful and tranquil spot, just to enjoy a sit down or quiet read a mere step out of the main Street of St Marychurch. Beautiful.

Manor Gardens Exmouth

5 Happaway Rd, Torquay TQ2 8ED, UK

Fantastic little park although iit needs some TLC at present

Very good
