An English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark Key Site, Torre Abbey is Torbay’s most historic building, an ancient scheduled monument dating back to 1196 set within 18 acres of garden and parkland.
The Abbey’s story began with the arrival of an abbot and six canons at Torre, they had been sent from Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire following the gift of land from the Lord of the Manor of Torre, William Brewer. Rich fertile land, proximity to the sea and stone from a nearby headland provided the founding medieval Premonstratensian Monks with all the resources they needed to establish Torre Abbey.
