Babbacombe, Torquay

#7 of 87 in Things to do in Torquay
Neighborhood · Other
A district notable for its model village, beach, and cliff-top green, Babbacombe is a leisurely area full of all things English. Visit the Babbacombe Downs for the races, or take a short ride on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway for pleasant views. The Church of All Saints is constructed of local marble and houses some remarkable stonework. The model village is a miniature of the town itself, but with ironically named shops and cafes that tend to inspire giggles from visitors. Check out the district's website for special events. Make Babbacombe a centerpiece of your Torquay vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Torquay trip planning tool.
