Well worth a visit to the Riviera Wheel. Priced fairly at £6 per person and we were on for approximately 10 minutes (the wheel goes around twice) Brilliant views of Torquay !We will go on again on our next visit.

My 8 year old daughter convinced me to go onto the wheel and I’m really glad she did. We had some amazing views across the bay even though it was a little cloudy on the day. I thought the price was reasonable for 2 adults...More
