Kaplan's English School in Torquay

Taking one of our English courses in Torquay is a great way to get to know one of Britain’s most popular seaside cities. If you want to be close to the ocean and learn English in a relaxed, beautiful location, then Torquay offers a great mix of bustling city life and quiet seaside. 

Our English school in Torquay is only a 3-minute walk from the town center, which has great shops, restaurants, pubs and bars. The weather in Torquay is also some of Britain’s best – so when it’s raining in London you’ll be on the beach in shorts and flip flops!

Want to learn English by the sea? Check out our English school in Bournemouth, or some of our other locations in the UK.

We also offer English courses for young learners and Private English Lesson courses in Torquay.
