 The Little Theatre, Torquay

Housed in a former church, this theatre is now home to the TOADS theatre company. This amateur company is run along professional lines and is much  like a professional repertory company of days gone by. It has an impressive programme of shows throughout the year. In addition they also host some touring productions that demand a more intimate venue. This theatre is just a five minute walk from The Hesketh Crescent Apartment.

The Central Cinema, Torquay

Located in the very heart of the town, this cinema has a rather dilapidated feel. It is nevertheless strangely charming and is one of the cheapest cinemas in the country.Shortly, a brand new cinema will open in the centre of Torquay operated by Merlin, the owners of The Central Cinema.


Vue Cinema, Paignton

This cinema can be found right on the seafront in Paignton and is smart and modern but considerably more expensive that its Torquay competitor. In reality it is much more what you would expect to pay in other parts of the country. In the winter time when the road adjacent to the promenade allows unrestricted access, it is extremely cheap and convenient to park.


Offshore Bar, Torquay

This bar on Torquay harbourside is just a few steps beyond the tourist information office and is a great place for people who like live music. Relaxed and friendly, it can become very busy in the summer months.


Genting Casino, Torquay

For people who like a little adventure in their lives, the casino offers all you would expect from a casino including food of good quality. It does not benefit from a central location so taxis are highly recommended.
