Attraction Information

Torre Abbey, in the heart of the English Riviera, is over 800 years old and has witnessed some epic moments in history. There is so much to discover in this rambling building with over 20 different levels, 122 rooms, and 265 steps, so this might be one to leave the grandparents out of!

The house has a clever combination of authentic artefacts with hi tech interpretations, from interactive displays to talking statues and paintings! Visit the Great Barn and hear a story about Spanish Armada prisoners, and keep an eye out for the armoured knight, who responds to your movement and reminisces about turning the Abbey into a luxurious Tudor House! You can also see one of the largest fine art collections in the South West. Pick up a family guide to discover more about the many hidden mysteries of the Abbey.

The gardens are a tranquil haven full of exotic plants, with trails to follow, and special discovery backpacks for the kids. Features include the Palm House, Walled Garden, Children's Medieval Garden, and the Pets' Graveyard. The perfect place to have an interesting wander and a picnic.
