A Different Type of View

The view from Bay Torbay Hotel looks a little different at the minute, a 60m observation wheel has been erected in Princess Gardens opposite the Bay Torbay Hotel, don’t worry views from the hotel have not been obscured.

The 365 tonne wheel was completed in four days by eleven highly trained staff and has come straight from London’s Victoria Park Olympic celebrations. It is open to the public from 10am to 10pm until 31st October.

From the wheel you will be able to take in stunning views over the bay and on a clear day you can see for miles. From the wheel you can see over to Paignton and Brixham.

The ride will last approximately 12 minutes and passengers can hear commentary on Torbay’s history, events and attractions.

Within Torbay we have four hotels namely, Bay Torbay (Torquay), Bay Tor Park (Torquay), Bay Trecarn (Babbacombe) and Bay Esplanade (Paignton) each of these hotels offer weekend and midweek breaks throughout the year.

Love any type of water-sport, especially sailing. Normally out each weekend in Torbay even in the winter months! Another passion of mine is anything to do with computers and technology.
