Arriving By Car
Torquay is typically approached via the A380 from Exeter/Newton Abbot direction.  To find as from there, do the following:
  1. Stay on the A380, along the South Devon Expressway (50mph average speed section) until the left turning toward Torquay at the end. 
  2. Travel along Riviera Way which becomes Newton Road until you get to Torre Station (on your right).
  3. Outside the station, bear right towards the Sea Front along Avenue Road. 
  4. At the Sea Front T-junction, turn left. 
  5. Keeping the sea on your right, keep driving until the Marina (taking the first exit at the round-about) where you will see shops, cafes and ultimately a Clock Tower in the middle of a second round-about adjacent to the Marina. 
  6. At that round-about take the first exit up Torwood Street which rapidly becomes Babbacombe Road. 
  7. You will see the Museum and Riviera Life Church on your left – Gresham Court is directly on the next left turning into Braddons Hill Road East.

Arriving By Bus
The 22 and 122 buses both stop close to Gresham Court - in both directions of travel.  Alight at  'The Museum' and you will find us a few metres up the hill on the left.

By Train
Train journeys to Torquay typically require a change at Exeter or Newton Abbot, whether traveling South from the London or Midlands direction, or North from Cornwall.  It is best to alight at the main Torquay station rather than Torre.  Taxis are readily available (see below) or, from the main station walk directly down Rathmore Road 100 metres to the corner with Torbay Road where a 22 or 122 bus may be caught (towards St Marychurch, Dawlish, etc.).  Ask for a ticket to The Museum.

We recommend the following Taxis who we know to provide an excellent, reliable service:
  • Torbay Taxis - tel: 01803 211 611
  • Torbay Cab Company - tel: 01803 292 292
