Torbay Events

VisitPaignton.net/Torbay Holiday Guide lists some of the major events of Torbay.

There are three main towns around the bay: Torquay in the north, Paignton in the centre, and Brixham in the south. Renowned for its healthful climate, the bay earned the nickname of the English Riviera.

Tor Bay itself is a fine natural harbour and home to a host of maritime events all year round, and due to the mild climate Torbay Palm trees are a common sight along the coast.
