Torre Abbey Historic House and Gardens is now offering members of the armed forces 2 for 1 on admission for the attraction.

This forces-friendly initiative is set up to support those who represent the country through military occupations by offering them discount to this popular historic house, situated in the heart of Torbay.

Come and visit 800 years of history, with interactive learning activities and vast amounts of historical artefacts. Take a stroll through beautiful gardens and enjoy the wonderful food and drink from the tea rooms. 

Executive Lead of Tourism, Culture and Harbours and Armed Forces Champion, Councillor Nicole Amil has said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our service members to make the most of our wonderful attractions in the Bay.

"Torbay is a strong supporter of all of our armed forces with service members originating and visiting the bay regularly. It is wonderful to be able to give something back to them for all their hard work, particularly around the festive period.”

Torre Abbey is celebrating Christmas in a variety of ways involving the whole family. Christmas Family Fun is being provided in the learning lab where children can craft and create beautiful Christmas decorations or they can take part in Christmas trails throughout the estate.
