Torquay is a town on the south coast of England in the county of Devon which has extended along the coast of Torbay to the extent that it is now inextricably intermingled with the neighbouring town of Paignton. In the 19th century it became a fashionable seaside resort, renowned for its healthy climate it gained a nickname as the English Riviera. Although it has been suggested that Torquay roughly signifies 'Thor's Harbor' (cognate to Tórshavn, Faroe Islands and Þórshöfn, Iceland), a more likely root is the Old English word torr (itself of Celtic origins), which now occurs as tor or torre in place names in Devon and Cornwall.
