Station to Stadium

The ground is over two miles away from the main Torquay railway station and so a taxi (around £5) may well be in order.

Torre station (one stop before Torquay station but not all trains stop there) is closest to the ground. Walk up the hill opposite the station and its around a 20-25 minute walk.

If you have time on your hands then you can walk to the ground from Torquay station in around 40 minutes.

On leaving the station turn left into Rathmore Road. Follow the road crossing into Rathmore Road. Proceed by way of Lucius Street and Tor Hill Road into Union Street.

Take the St. Marychurch Road and climb the Hill towards Babbacombe then take the third turning on the right into Bronshill Road.

The floodlights of Plainmoor will be visable after a few minutes on the left.

(Thanks to for stadium directions.)

Remember, it's in a Group Save area that can cut fares in half if four of you can travel together, getting it down to around £25 each in this case, and any various travelcards will make it even cheaper.
