Like so many amazing towns in the county of Devon, the borough of Torbay is full of amazing history along with natural beauty. Torbay is located on Devon’s famous south coast, and it overlooks clear blue waters from the English Riviera, seen most clearly from Paignton, Torquay or Brixham. Torbay dates itself back to Palaeolithic times, where there is evidence of Roman soldiers visiting Kent’s Cavern. Kent’s Cavern is located in Torquay and is one of Britain’s best showcaves and around 400 million years old. Torbay got its famous name from the word ‘Tor’ which is Saxon language for craggy hill or peak.
During the 1948 Olympics, Torbay hosted the yachting events, with Torre Abbey serving as the main venue for the opening and closing ceremonies. Torre Abbey nowadays is a family friendly Torbay Council owned museum and gardens, where they host visual arts, history talks and live performances. Back in the day Torre Abbey was home to medieval Premonstratensian monks that arrived at the Abbey in 1196.
