Inner Harbour

Admire the beautiful yachts moored in this picturesque harbor, which sits within easy walking distance of many of Torquay’s main attractions. 

The Inner Harbour is the area of Torquay Harbour where yacht-owners looking for long-term berth moor their boats. Set against the pretty backdrop of the strip, with its lovely historic buildings, the Inner Harbour looks like it could have come straight off a postcard. Go for a walk here to enjoy the sights and sounds of the harbor, then take the time to explore the other attractions in the area. 

The Inner Harbour has space for up to 200 boats, while the wider Torquay Harbour can have as many as 1,000 moored in it at any one time. See the different kinds of boats that make use of the harbor. From fishermen to ferrymen to vacationers, the harbor sees activity from all kinds of people. 

Walk across the Millennium Bridge to reach the Inner Harbour. To see the bridge at its most impressive, visit it after dark, when its two sail-like structures will be illuminated. 

Pick up some traditional British “fish and chips” from one of the shops scattered around the harbor. Eat them on the go as you stroll around the harbor. Alternatively, stop for a coffee with a sea view at one of the cafés here. At night time, the Inner Harbour area is also a great place to come for drinks, as there are many lively bars here. 

Explore the attractions next to the Inner Harbour, such as the Beacon Quay shopping development, which houses restaurants as well as stores. Take the kids for a prehistoric adventure at Torquay’s Dinosaur World, or try to win prizes on the arcade machines at Harbour Amusements. 

To the west of the harbor is the English Riviera Wheel, a tall Ferris wheel offering fantastic sea views. Find the lovely Princess Pier a little further along the coast. This is a great place to go for a walk. 

Follow the coastline east on foot from Torquay’s train station to reach the Inner Harbour within around 25 minutes. This is the hub of the town’s action, and many of the places to stay are concentrated close by.
