And I prefer not to go there at all. My Mom has lived there for the last 25 years and in that time it has gone from a selective seaside resort to an absolute dump. The high street, if you can call it that, is dirty and there are more boarded up shop fronts than those that are open. If you must go to Devon avoid Torquay - that is of course nothing to do with the queue of traffic waiting to get into Torquay from Newton Abbot, I can never understand why so many people want to go there! Best bit of Torquay - leaving, except for leaving my Mom of course.

The only place in the world I could pull in a wetsuit with a foot of sticky up hair and cheeks like a jock landlord. Good smack there as well, straight from the Colombas via Portugal.

Torquay - a bit of a dump. I taught in a secondary school there for a time. Well, it was 40 years ago, but the staff room notice board still had notices up instructing teachers on what they were to do in an air raid, which year group was to go to which shelter etc. It was 40 years ago, but still more than a quarter of a century after the last visit by the Luftwaffe bearing gifts for the fine people of Devon.

Gay man beaten after leaving Torquay nightclub

A gay man was robbed and beaten while leaving a gay club in Torquay, south Devon, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Daniel Adams, a hairdresser, told the Herald Express he suffered bruises and torn ligaments in his knee after more than six young men and women confronted him shortly after leaving Candyfloss on Rock Road.

The group knocked him to the ground and stole his phone, worth £450, and a wallet containing £250 cash.
But to quote: The food in Torquay is among the best in Devon.

I live in Paignton one of the other DUMPs here, anti car, holiday maker nightmare, rude Tourist, all wanting something for nothing, - worst tippers English are I work in catering doing all the cooking etc etc etc all in all I may have made £7.25 in tips in 22 years (enough said) if I had a £1 for lovely meal and service, I would only have been working 10yrs or less and become a millionaire. :p :p :p

Mistersoft, there are no chavs in Brixham!


Ok, there are lots, but they certainly aren't everywhere like Torquay which has gone downhill massively over the last few years...! When next home may have to check out the gay bar, everyone knows they are the best places to trap chicks with their guard down....

Bloody hell, had me worried for a minute. I thought my Chav recognition skills had let me down. I haven't been to Brixham in years but of the three (Torquay, Paignton and Brixham), I know which one I'd still prefer.

As i grew up in Torquay, i also know which I perfer, I still visit on a yearly basis to see family and friends which still live there, but hate going in it the town and always leave with a sign of relief. The main road in is a nightmare so I tend to use the back Milbur route which brings me in at the right end of town as well, They really do need to do something to sort out the traffic problems from Newton Abbot and Torquay, but it has been like that for as long as I can remember.

Torquay is set on a magnificent piece of wasteland. It sits on the South Devon coastline and is an extremely popular holiday resort town with the aged and infirm. Since it is a resort town, the beach is a primary form of entertainment, principally for it's pollution and renowned nudism.
Relaxation is what brings some to Torquay, sexual deviance is more popular however. There are numerous hotels to choose from, although few are even vaguely sanitary and the beach seems endlessly tedious, with a fine collection of dog's eggs. Rates from "cheap as oven-chips", bargain unwashed student accommodation, right up to luxury pseudo sales-executive suites exist in what is laughably known as the city centre.
Along with Torquay’s attractions are the dining opportunities . The town has a big number of restaurants, which can offer an exciting variety of baterial based diseases. Torquay also has a variety of pubs, cafes bistros and restaurants that offer endless culinary choices, for those who enjoy the taste of cardboard. The food in Torquay is among the best in Devon, which unfortunately is saying very very little.
