Don't use Torbay Taxis - they are seemingly dishonest. Torbay Taxis have let me and my friends down on a number of occasions|: they then deny everything and never apologise. Real SCHISTERS! Try Torquay Taxis instead. Tel: 01803 292292 Happy Christmas and use a company that puts you first.

stayed in the grand hotel nearby, and enjoyed a walk around this lovely old station. you can hear the sea roaring in the wind it was October gales and very blustery. Our hotel within a few hundred yards of train station so its ideal for people who don't drive.

We travelled by train from Torquay to Paignton. The ticket purchase was prompt, the café on the station platform clean, tidy, cheap and cheerful. Plus the train itself was on time and spotless

This is a lovely railway station built by Brunel and has been lovingly restored to its former glory. We were particularly impressed with Phil on platform duty who was courteous and informative a real credit to South West trains.

Well maintained and decorated in the appropriate style with neat gardens and between the sets of rails a mass of pampas grass. Must not forget the helpful staff and easy access.
