Torquay is renowned for its food and drink. The Orange Tree is a very popular eatery with locals and tourists and offers a European and English seasonally appropriate menu in a warm, friendly atmosphere. Hanbury's Fish and Chips is another Torquay dining hotspot and won South West Fish and Chip Shop of the Year for 8 years, only serving local fish from reputable sellers who promote conservation and sustainability.
Torquay has three major shopping centres: Union Square, The Fleet Walk, and The Willows, all of which have an eclectic combination of boutique, independent, and high street stores. The Market Forum is a popular indoor market that offers a range of local produce and handcrafted items.
The Babbacombe Model Village features four acres of miniature houses, shops, people, and animals, and is a great open-air attraction for the whole family. Torquay Museum is a must-see with its Agatha Christie Gallery including Poirot Lounge and study. These attractions are easily accessible from many Torquay hotels.
Because Torquay is on the coast, water sports are incredibly popular, and there are regular sailing regattas and powerboating events to watch or participate in. Prominent sailing clubs include Babbacombe Corinthian Sailing Club and the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. You can also surf and jet ski at the beach.
