Torquay DevonFrom Torquay you can explore the spectacular coastlines of Devon with seaside resorts, pretty fishing villages, coves, creeks and bays. Inland are rolling meadows, remote thatched cottages and the wild, bleak Dartmoor. The historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth are reminders of Devon's maritime past, while the quiet attractive towns of Sidmouth, Dartmouth and Salcombe retain their 19th century elegance.
