THIS YEAR WE CELEBRATE HISTORY BY CREATING SCAVENGER HUNTS FOR A FUN WAY TO DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF TORQUAY.

CHOOSE ONE OR CHOOSE THEM ALL. DO IN ONE SESSION OR SPREAD THEM OVER DAYS. ENTER OUR COMPETITION OR DO THEM WITHOUT COMPETING. THE CHOICE IS YOURS WITH SO MUCH FLEXIBILITY.

Whether you have been living in Torquay for a long time or new to the area, you know there is plenty to explore in our corner of the world. To help you discover them all, we’ve created our first-ever Torquay History Scavenger Hunt: Three adventures to get you out of the house and discovering our town’s quirky offerings with tasks ranging from offbeat finds to fun activities.

 

We love this place—let’s get out there and live it!
