Just outside the hustle and bustle of Torquay sits Babbacombe Bay, a gentle curving bay with a family friendly elevated promenade known as Babacombe Downs.

Bedecked with flowers this wonderful area with views to die for is almost a resort in itself, with café, hotels and restaurants sitting serenely looking out towards Lyme Bay.

Take a trip in the Vehicular Railway that has been running since 1926 down to the beach where you can sit and take in the sea air and maybe even see our resident Babbacombe Seal...whose head pops up to welcome one and all.

Not that this area is always quiet , during the summer the Downs is transformed into a mecca for Music events, Fete' s and so much more, don't forget to visits our events page on our web site to see what is going on
