New guides will help re-open Torbay’s natural attractions

Date Posted: 10 December 2020

Working in partnership to improve access

We have been working in partnership with UNESCO Global Geopark to create a number of Visual Guides.

These visual guides provide the information people need in advance of their visit to a site and help them get the most out of their visit. The visual guides have been created for ten of South Devon’s best-loved attractions including Kents Cavern, Torre Abbey, and Brixham Heritage Museum.

Full details of which sites are offering visual guides and improved access, please visit the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark website.

Torbay Council Cabinet member Mike Morey said:

The importance of these guides is relevant now more than ever; with sites beginning to re-open, wanting to attract visitors, and yet many people in our communities feeling too vulnerable or nervous to venture out to such places.These guides will help alleviate some of their concerns by informing them exactly what they can expect during their visit.”
