Why Kaplan English students love Torquay nightlife

From the sleek bars of the Riviera to the dance clubs of Ibiza, there seems to be something about life by the sea that creates incredible nightlife, especially in Torquay.

This beachy English town combines the after dark entertainment highlights of coastal hotspots from around the world to create a thriving one-of-a-kind nightlife scene. Where else but Torquay can you get homely British fish and chips, at local restaurant, The London Fryer, then enjoy an Ibiza style foam party afterwards, at The Venue?

As one of Torquay’s most popular nightclubs, The Venue also offers impressive laser shows, great value cocktails and big name UK DJs to entertain the energetic crowd. Lively two room nightclub Bohemia is another favourite with students from Kaplan’s Torquay School, who love its varied music, from hip hop to house.

If nights like those of the Spanish party islands aren’t your thing, then try a taste of the Riviera instead. Gemelli’s Restaurant and Delicatessen will have you feeling like you’re on the Italian coast in no time, while Torquay’s Hennessy cocktail lounge is just like the chic bars of St. Tropez.

Of course if you’re going to go on an English adventure to Torquay, you won’t want to miss out on all the fascinating local culture either. The Hole in the Wall, Torquay’s oldest pub, is the best place to take your fellow Kaplan English language students for delicious British food and authentic brewed beer.

Next, discover the English sense of humour at the Babbacombe Theatre, which frequently hosts the biggest names of the UK comedy scene. To catch up on what’s going on with British sport, gaze up at the huge television screens of the nautical themed Yacht pub, while the Blue Walnut is the place to go for talented live UK bands.  Film and drama fans, on the other hand, will prefer the West End plays of the Princess Theatre or the blockbusters of the Merlin Cinema.

Not just famous for beautiful beaches, the seaside town of Torquay will keep you entertained right through the night. Already fallen in love with Torquay? Let everyone know why by leaving a comment.
