Local Attractions

Royal Terrace Gardens

Also known as Rock Walk, the Royal Terrace Gardens are located beneath the cliff of Waldon Hill. The terrace overlooks the seafront and is one of the most popular places to visit in Torquay, with spectacular views of the harbour. The terrace was reopened in 2010 after extensive work was done to clear the paths of vegetation and trees, and two rock sculptures created by artist Juliet Haysom were commissioned, adding even more beauty to this delightful spot.

Living Coasts is an all-weather attraction situated on Torquay's seafront. The zoo and aquarium offer a huge range of different species and creatures from penguins to seals, otters to octopuses. Living Coasts also has its very own Penguin Beach, showcasing macaroni penguins, which are native to the Subantarctic but visit rocky coastal shores during the spring and summer. There are plenty of feeding times and talks scheduled throughout the day to keep you busy, plus a busy café offering local food and drink, as well as a panoramic sea view.
