Set amongst its seven green hills, nine beaches, palm-lined promenades and lively harbour side it's no surprise that Torquay is known as the Queen of the English Riviera.
Whilst Torquay owes much of its fame and history to its success as a Victorian resort, it hasn't stood still and today it has transformed itself and boasts a deep water marina alongside the harbour, where pavement cafes and boutique shops abound along with a wide range of top class restaurants. The regional capital of Exeter is within easy reach thanks to the recently opened South Devon Link Road and provides all of the big brand shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Exeter's International Airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond.
There are a number of well regarded state and private schools in the area including the boys and girls Grammar schools. DESCRIPTION
