Torquay is a prominent resort town right on the English Channel. While its immaculate beaches are the perfect respite, Torquay also has much to offer tourists who are interested in history and anthropology. Now part of the English Riviera, this seaside getaway was first inhabited by Palaeolithic cave dwellers. The local seafood and shopping are more high points of this city.
