It was a beautiful sunny day, and we got off the bus which dropped us in the town centre and had some lunch at Shiraz – ordering fish and chips of course. It had outdoor seating which overlooked the harbour. It was so pretty to look at, so many boats. This is a photo of the harbour I took when on the English Riviera Wheel.
And that is the next thing we did, go on the English Riviera Wheel – Torquay’s answer to the London Eye. Tickets cost £6 per adult, and it went round 3 times. We saw awesome views from our pod and Tyler really enjoyed it.
After that we went to the beach which was round the corner – Torre Abbey Sands. Like the name suggests, it’s a sandy beach and it is beautiful!
It was a Monday afternoon so we pretty much had it to ourselves, apart from the odd mum and kid. I imagine it would be packed in holiday season, so we really appreciated it. And as we were at the seaside, we HAD to buy ice cream!
We bought a towel from a shop at the top of the beach to brush all the sand off afterwards. Then we headed into the town centre to take a photo of the old Woolworths building for my Woolies blog, and to buy some ready meals from Tesco Extra before jumping on a bus back to our Paignton holiday home.
A good day out all in all. There is loads more to do in Torquay, but really we just wanted to go to the beach 🙂
