    No need to head to the West End, come to the South West and enjoy the highly entertaining and professional variety show Fantazy! We’d read the reviews but nothing prepared us for the outstanding show last night at Babbacombe Theatre. Everyone front of house was welcoming and friendly and each performer gave everything…even on a Tuesday night, and to a mixed crowd. We were thrilled with it and plan to return. So lovely to see variety’s heart is still beating strong in Devon 🥰

    Such a pretty place! We were too late for the shops and fairs as we didn’t go until early evening, but we still had a lovely walk around the village and gardens and it was beautiful. Would definitely come back during the day next time we are in the area.

    We would highly recommend the above guest house. Everything about this establishment is first class, the welcome, the cleanliness of the room, outstanding breakfasts (not forgetting home made cake in the room each day) everything catered for and nothing too much trouble for the hosts Paul and Cheryl. Thank you.

    Took about 1.5 hours to go round with 4 kids. They enjoyed the quiz and getting a certificate at the end.
    Lots of photo opportunities and interesting facts.
    Good value and much cheaper than other local attractions, inside so perfect for a rainy day!

    An interesting Museum which was not overbearing with information boards. Exhibits were well set out and the displays were varied and so quite a lot to interest for children. Our only critiscm was that some cabinets contained a lot of exhibits but only 5/6 items were explained at the front of the cabinet and some were not easy to locate. Also from a personal point of view, I did not like the exhibit concerning the dating of exhibits. As an elderly person, it was too low down for me view properly and it could perhaps be better presented.

    Great location on Torquay seafront. Reasonably priced multi storey car park nearby (on the road towards harbour) friendly staff and nice bars. Camden ale on tap (great)
    Good views inside (we were in the stalls) and good acoustics. There for a matinee and tickets very reasonable (less than £20)
    All in all a good experience
