In the beautiful bay of Torbay in the English Channel, three cities surprise and delight visitors with their microclimate: Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Studying abroad in Torquay means immersing yourself in the most elegant atmosphere in England, right on the seashore.
Palm trees, Italian-style villas, magnificent beaches, shops, restaurants and cafés evoke the Mediterranean coast even though it's her majesty's England! Agatha Christie, the famous mystery writer, was born in Torquay, and a museum details her incredible career. You can also visit the Kent Caverns, a testament to more than half a million years of human history in the region. Paignton, the neighbouring city, boasts historic Paignton Pier on the water.
