The walking tours along the English Riviera will convey stories and fascinating facts about the people and events which have shaped its history. Not surprisingly, the Agatha Christie tour is our most popular walk – Torquay’s best-known resident!

And while you’re discovering the beauty of our South Devon walks, all the exercise and fresh air will help improve your overall well-being. So, by the end of every walk, not only are you sure to have an extra spring in your step, you’ll also be able to justify a Devon cream tea!
