TORQUAY is a thriving seaside town and birthplace of the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie. Follow in her footsteps on the Princess Pier where she roller skated in her childhood. Or soak in some literary insight on the Agatha Christie Mile, a route of 12 stops taking in some of the locations that inspired her books. The town is also part of a UNESCO Global Geopark due to its location on the Jurassic Coast. Its a real foodie town too with an array of fresh seafood available at the nearby fish market and local restaurants. There are also many independent shops to browse.
From The Barbican in Plymouth enjoy a SCENIC HARBOUR CRUISE. Set sail across Plymouth Sound passing the Hoe, Drake’s Island and spectacular views of Mount Edgcumbe on route to the river Tamar.
Afterwards you will have time to explore THE BARBICAN, Plymouth’s delightful old port, full of narrow cobbled streets, Elizabethan warehouses, specialist shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Its also where Sir Francis Drake sailed and from the Mayflower Steps is where the Pilgrim Fathers departed to settle in the New World.
