Torquay railway station is on the Riviera branch line from Exeter St Davids. Along with Paignton, it is one of the two main railway stations in the Torbay region.
Trains to Exeter run every half hour on weekdays but are less frequent on weekends. Many trains continue towards Exmouth and there are also some long-distance trains including a CrossCountry service to Manchester Piccadilly and a GWR service to London Paddington. However, in most cases, passengers making long-distance journeys should change trains at Newton Abbot.
The station is on Rathmore Road around a 20-minute walk to the town centre.
