The resort of Babbacombe sits adjacent to Torquay, yet continues to enjoy its own independence and boasts its very own promenade, theatre, shops, restaurants and of course the world famous Babbacombe Model Village – with thousands of spectacular miniature buildings, people and transport, along with touches of English humour, it captures the essence of England’s past, present and future. Babbacombe also has a cliff railway which takes you down to the beach and is one of only a few original funicular railways still in existence today.
Babbacombe is the perfect choice for an English Riviera break but without the hustle and bustle of one of the built up major resorts. If you do want to pop into Torquay then it is only a very short bus ride away or for the more energetic a pleasant stroll!
