WHAT TO DO FOR A WEEK IN TORQUAY

This blog post is so overdue, we went to Torquay in April and I’ve only just copied the photos over from my old computer to this one to upload onto the blog. But, at least we are there now right? Torquay was such a beautiful place, it was like we went abroad, the water was so blue and clear and we were so lucky with the weather. We also went over mine and my brother’s birthday so it was a perfect way to celebrate another year of our births.

Paignton Zoo

Paignton zoo is what I decided to do for my birthday. The giraffes and the elephants were my favourite animals there. One giraffe even decided to chase a seagull around it enclosure which was the cutest thing ever.

Kents Cavern

well… I think it’s pretty obvious that Kents Cavern is a cave. I find cave’s fascinating how the rock forms like this overtime. What a beautiful natural world we live in.

Breakfast With A View

We had a English breakfast with a view at Ansty’s cove cafe. There is just something amazing about eating breakfast with a view like this, I think it was one of the best I ever had! When our bellies were full we went on a coastal walk which was beautiful. There was so many picture opportunities and cute town called Babbacombe where we took a cliff railway to have a walk at the top of the cliff . Not gunna lie, my feet killed me at the end of it all but it was well worth it.

Night Photography

I also experimented with night time photography for the first time, I set up my tripod and used the wifi function on the camera to connect it up to my phone to act as a clicker so that I didn’t have to jog the camera when I wanted to take the photo.

Canonteign Falls and Lyme Regis

On our way home, we had a little detour, first we walked around the tallest man-made waterfall in England, Canonteign Falls and then we went for another stroll along the beach at Lyme Regis where we had a fish and chips before we made the rest of the journey home.

The waterfalls

Cannonteign falls are England’s tallest man made waterfall! It was definitely a trek to the top but the views were definitely worth it. There was so much woodland area to explore that it was impossible to explore every area we could during the couple of hours we stayed here, but I think we covered the highlights!

It was so hard to choose out of 2,500 photos that I took, but I think I’ve put a good overview of my time here in Torquay.
