Love reading? Love walking in the fresh air? Why not combine the two at our brand new Paperback Ramblers Club. Perfect for exercising both the body and mind.

Led by Squircle Arts with visiting guest authors, the walks will take in the local literary landscape from the museum gardens to Torre Abbey Meadows’ or perhaps Torre Abbey Sands and on up to Corbyn Head.

The gentle walks will also be very sociable – there’s something more relaxed about walking and talking when surrounded by beautiful scenery, rather than sat in an uninspiring room.

With the likes of Charles Kingsley, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Charles Dickins, Charles Darwin, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling and Agatha Christie all putting pen to paper whilst staying in the Bay there is a rich literary legacy to explore.

We request that you sign up to all of the 12 weeks (minimum of 8), however if you are unable to make a week please just let us know beforehand.


Torbay CAN (Connecting Actively to Nature)

The CAN programme aims to help people discover the combined benefits of a more active lifestyle, with the psychological benefits that being outdoors in nature brings.

Starting this summer at Torre Abbey we are running a series of free to attend short courses to specifically help the over 55’s with getting outdoors, trying something new and meeting new people.

Although aimed at over 55’s (where suitable) we encourage them to bring their younger family members along too.

All sessions are part of the Torbay Connecting to Nature Programme funded by Active Devon
