Torquay's most famous daughter is the acclaimed author, Agatha Christie, but the town dates back a lot longer than that - all the way back to prehistoric times. Hand axes have been found in the Kents Cavern dating back 500,000 years. Torquay remained a small secluded place until Victorian times when the arrival of the Great Western Railway opened up Torquay to the general public and slowly the popular holiday resort we know today was born.
