Both Torre Abbey and Torquay Museum are offering free adult entry tickets for anyone who has travelled to the attractions by public transport. Anyone travelling by bus, train or the land train just has to present a valid ticket from that day to enjoy free entry to the attractions. This includes tickets purchased online, or people who have travelled to the museums using a bus pass. Each museum has 250 free entry tickets which will be available on a first-come first-served basis.

The initiative has been funded by Torbay Council and is aimed at encouraging people to both use public transport when visiting the wonderful heritage attractions the Bay has to offer.

The offer will run from Tuesday 10 May 2022 and will continue until the free tickets run out.

Please note, the offer doesn’t include child tickets, but these can be purchased on the day.
