It is now cheaper and easier than ever to travel to your conference in Torquay. First Great Western, Conference Torquay and the Riviera International Conference Centre, have collaborated to offer conference rail fares exclusively to delegates travelling to conferences on the English Riviera. Leave the car at home, do your bit for the environment and let First Great Western whisk you at speeds of up to 125mph direct to Torquay station.

The scheme will provide discounted rail travel to Conference Delegates from all main First Great Western stations, as well as many of the connecting routes to First Great Western from the Home Counties, all accessible through an online booking facility.

These special fares are available approximately 3 months prior to the conference, and can be from as little as £49 return, from London to Torquay. A complete list of fares is available to download below.

Delegates can also enjoy the extra benefits of First Class travel from the same range of departure stations at a special fare as well. For example the return First Class fare from London is just £99 and offers use of First Class lounges at Paddington as well as wider, more luxurious train seating, power points and complimentary refreshments and newspapers.

Torquay offers delegates and guests the best of both worlds – a place to relax but also a place with lots to do.

Famed for its award-winning beaches Torquay is in many ways the quintessential seaside resort. After a day of meetings, a stroll along the palm tree lined promenade is the ideal way to unwind.

But for those wishing for a little added stimulus, Torquay has it covered. From the Agatha Christie Mile to the Living Coasts Zoo, from bars to restaurants to harbourside shops, time away from the conference hall can be as action packed or as relaxing as your delegates choose.



Paignton too, with its iconic pier and expansive beaches, is a classic English Rivera resort, full of charm and with plenty to do.

Paignton’s many attractions include an internationally renowned zoo, a steam railway, numerous bars and restaurants and a coastal path with unforgettable views.



A traditional maritime town, Brixham is full of history – from a life-size replica of Sir Frances Drake's Golden Hind to the Heritage Museum. There’s a great choice of café’s, bars and restaurants and naturally it's the place to visit for great seafood.
