Torbay is a area in Devon, England which joins the towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

Also known in the 1800s as the English Riviera, the Torbay towns make up a popular seaside resort on the south coast in Devon.  Torquay takes its name from the old town of Torre, which takes its name from the tor which can be seen from (oddly enough) Tor Hill Road. As there was a quay in the ancient town, the town became Torre-quay.

The type of private housing, hotels and commercial buildings vary considerably around the Torbay area. They range from offices and attractions beside the harbour at Beacon Quay to the range of houses and flats built on the surrounding hillside of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

The local area is covered by Torbay Council and the South Hams Council. There planning offices often have to be informed of any building projects, extensions and alterations. With our experience we can help and advise you with communications, building regulations and anything else that be involved.

Communications into the area include a main rail link to two stations serving Torquay and one in Paignton. There is a new A380 link road being constructed around Kingskerswell which should offer improved access into Torbay.
