I spent the last Summer Bank Holiday by the sea. It was a short trip, and unfortunately I did not had time to visit a bit more and get immersed in the life of locals.
Torquay is located in the English Riviera (Devon) and has been known as one of the Top 10 Holiday Destinations in UK (according to this).
It can be reached easily by train, bus or obviously by car.
And from what I could see, Torquay is a nice, little, posh city by the sea-side. People seemed more relaxed than usual (probably because of the sea-breeze) and it reminded me a lot of Lausanne (Switzerland) – one of my favourite cities.
I will definitely go back there some day, and do a bit more exploring and see what it has to offer. In the mean time though, enjoy few snaps I took while I was there.
