Thank you for visiting and welcome to the Victoria Bowling Club website.

The club is sited in the beautiful Abbey Gardens on the seafront of Torquay in South Devon referred to more popularly as the English Riviera.

The gardens with their palm trees overlook the beauty of Torbay encompassing the towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay. All easily linked by car, bus or sea ferries.

Our 'rolling' picture show at the top of the page gives you a taster of some of the views that can be enjoyed within Torbay.

Within easy reach from Torquay is the beautiful National Park of Dartmoor. (20 miles), Plymouth (26 miles) and Exeter (20 miles).






Adjacent to the gardens and to the rear of the Club Pavilion is Torre Abbey (shown left). This is an ancient building to which Torbay Council with Englih Heritage have carried out extensive restoration. The second and final phase of restoration is now complete. Visitors to Torquay and touring the interesting Abbey, you can also visit the Spansh Barn, so named after the Spanish prisoners of war who were held there following the defeat of he Spanish Armarda in 1588.
