Octopus tank

After the passing of our octopus, the tank is currently empty. We are now discussing options for redeveloping this exhibit. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Finding us

The 'penguin' brown tourist signs will lead guests right into Torquay and then on to a car park that is a short five minute walk from Living Coasts. We suggest that guests follow the 'penguin' brown tourist signs until reaching the Clocktower roundabout in Torquay town centre, and then follow the diversion signs in place, as the car park entrance has temporarily moved due to refurbishment works.

There is a small also council-owned car park right next to Living Coasts and alternative parking locations around the harbour.
