I travel to college every day from this station on the 7:46 train to London Paddington. By this time the train station is busy and fully up and running, however it is seemingly unstaffed. I had lost my rail pass (which I accept was my fault entirely and I should pay the price for this) but the price for a... More

We had some time here when waiting for our train journey home at the end of 5 days walking. The station looks to have had a recent (limited) facelift - the loos were certainly clean enough - but there is an overall aura of past glories, perhaps akin to the whole town itself? Lots of unused parts of the buildings... More

Agatha Christie is synonymous with Torquay and this railway station is akin to something off of one of her sets. We find the station staff friendly and polite. The only down side is when we set foot on the platform it means the end of our holiday.

The grey stonework of the station says Victorian inspiration, but it sits uncomfortably with the modern glass and plastics of the ticket office. the refreshments / cafe is on the down side, actually the wrong side as this platform only has one...
