People watching paradise, good walking, beaches, promenade, bars restaurants and Marian. If you get the weather this is as good as abroad.

Lovely sunny afternoon spent at the harbour. Drinks and people watching followed by fish and chips as the sun went down. Very nice place to visit for a few hours.

there is always enough to do and don't forget that there is a configuration of resorts along the coast easily accessible by bus including Torquay. there are plenty of exhibitions on year-round not to mention art galleries.
