We were staying in the Grand Hotel right next to the station, what a really nice place. We live in Chichester and our station is ugly, this is really nice. We think this has had a complete makeover recently and it shows.

Torquay station is not large but it has all the facilities you need. Often manned for tickets and helpful service, it's only difficult if you have to cross over the bridge with heavy luggage as there isn't a lift. Serves main cities, often with a...More

The station is moderately wheelchair friendly, there's a long walk from platform to platform as there is no lift. The trains are only moderately wheelchair friendly
