Torquay Car Hire

Torquay is a seaside town located in the county of Devon, in England, and has a population of around sixty five thousand. Torquay lies on the Northern part of Torbay, about twenty two miles (35.2km) South of Exeter, and thirty eight miles (61km) North East of Plymouth.

The town's major industry used to be agriculture and fishing, but developed into a seaside resort, dating back to the Napoleonic Wars, when the Royal Navy stayed there when they anchored in the bay. There are many tourist attractions in the town including the stone age site of Kents Cavern, which dates back to more than seven hundred thousand years. Living Coasts is the UK's only coastal zoo, which together with Newquay Zoo is part of the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust.

There are two train stations serving the town, they are Torquay Railway Station, which is located near Torre Abbey Sands close to the sea, and Torre Railway Station which lies further inland near a main road. Road access to Torquay is via the A380, which leads to the A38 and the M5 motorway to Exeter. Other routes to the town include the A3022 (off the A380), which leads to the seafront and on to Paignton. There are two bus services (run by Stagecoach Devon) that pass through the town, they are the X46 service between Exeter and Paignton, and the number twelve bus that runs betwen Newton Abbot and Brixham
