Art & Culture

Torquay’s art and culture

There's so much more than just the beach! Torquay is known for its thriving cultural scene, where old meets new. Visit the famed Torre Abbey, which dates back to the early 12th century. It is the most well-preserved mediaeval monastery in Devon and Cornwall, and today serves as a museum and art gallery. Here you can find a wide variety of art, with special exhibitions devoted to both historical and contemporary work. The beautiful formal gardens that surround the Abbey are also not to be missed.

Torquay is also practically synonymous with the famous writer, Agatha Christie, who once called the town home. Retrace her footsteps by walking along the Agatha Christie Mile, a trail that takes in a number of key spots the author had a connection to.
