Description

Did you know? * Torbay, `The English Riviera' boasts 22 miles of coastline, with 20 beaches and coves. * The famous Torbay palm is in fact a cabbage tree (cordyline australis) from New Zealand. * The Torbay Picture House was Europe's oldest cinema. Seat 2, Row 2 was Agatha Christie's favourite. She was born in Torquay. * Brixham's fishing fleet regularly lands more value than any other UK port outside Scotland. From the momentous to the outlandish, this book is packed full of fun facts and trivia about everything to do with this gem of Britain's coastline. Much more than a tourist guide, residents too will discover things they never knew about the town. Facts, history, humour; it's all here in this engaging little book.show more
