WHERE ARE WE?
In the days of satnav you'd think nowhere could remain hidden but it appears on occasion we do. It seems that some sat nav systems have decided we're located on St Mark's Road. We can assure you we're not, we are very definitely on Meadfoot Sea Road. For the record our address is:-
The Meadfoot Bay, Meadfoot Sea Road, Torquay TQ1 2LQ
Tel: +44 (0)1803 294722
The Riviera Line to Torquay is served by two stations, Torquay and Torre. Torquay is usually your best bet as virtually all trains stop there, whereas in the main only local services stop at Torre. You'll also find the taxi rank at Torquay station is generally better served by taxis. Rail connections are provided by GWR and Virgin Cross Country.
Tip to travellers from Paddington
The romance of rail travel has returned! GWR now offer an old fashioned restaurant car on some intercity services from London and the great thing it is open to all travellers, regardless of ticket type. So buy a Second Class ticket, book a table in the restaurant car and it will cost you less than First Class (depending on the size of your drinks bill!). Currently there are four departures a day that offer the Pullman Service but please check as no doubt they are subject to change.
Taxis are usually waiting on the rank at Torquay station, but if not either call us and we'll get one to you or you can call our taxi partner direct.
Torbay Cab Company (open 24 hrs)
If you're the nautical type you'll find we are a 15 minute stroll from the harbour or a three minute cab ride (see number above). For details of moorings etc:-
