With its iconic palm trees, international marina and sandy beach, alongside continental-style cafés and cocktail bars, it is no surprise that Torquay was the top trending UK holiday destination in 2021 and a great place to visit all year round. This is our best value UK bridge break. The TLH Toorak is a well-established hotel that offers good food, great value for money, and is perfectly situated right in the heart of Torquay. Directly opposite the hotel, you will find Torre Abbey, a historic building and art gallery. Walk through the Abbey’s extensive gardens, featuring plants from local writer Agatha Christie’s novels, and you will be led directly onto the lovely seafront promenade.
Colin Simcox will lead the February departure date, Sarah Amos along with David and Hilary Powell will lead the May departure, and Eddie and Kathy Williams will lead the October departure date.
Make your own way to the hotel.
Our bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break, and, in addition to playing bridge, we try to include interesting bridge seminars, hosted by your EBU-qualified director.
Your duplicate bridge will be available every evening between 7:45pm and 11:15pm. We endeavour to vary these evening sessions, balancing between teams and pairs and featuring at least one Swiss event during a two-week break.
Bridge will also be offered some afternoons between 2:30pm and 4:45pm. These sessions are normally given over to open pairs/teams.
Masterpoints are awarded on evening bridge sessions, and on day sessions with over 5 tables.
During your bridge holiday, nothing is obligatory, and you can play in as many or as few bridge sessions as you wish. We don’t forget you are on holiday and our bridge programmes also allow time to relax, giving the opportunity for you to explore the surrounding area.
After breakfast, depart from the hotel and make your own way home.
You will stay for four nights at the TLH Toorak Hotel.
The TLH Toorak Hotel is situated close to the town centre, nearby all the amenities this popular seaside resort has to offer. The 92-room hotel is a two-storey building overlooking attractive gardens with terraces, which hosts weddings and won the 2017 Torbay in Bloom competition.
