There are direct motorway, rail and air links to the English Riviera. It is only 191 miles from London and 185 miles from Birmingham with the M5 motorway reaching Exeter from the Midlands, London and North. It is then dual carriageway to close to the resort. The long awaited Kingskerswell bypass will be complete by end of 2015 and will then bring fast dual carriageway all the way to Torquay.
Torquay has excellent mainline train services from London Paddington via Exeter. Those mainline trains carrying on to Plymouth and beyond stop at Newton Abbot, where a regular shuttle train takes passengers to Torquay.
Ferries from Europe serve Weymouth, Southampton, Portsmouth and Plymouth. Delivery and collection can be arranged for overseas competitors via the Yacht Club.
There are national and international flights into Exeter, and Bristol airports. There are good fast rail links to London Heathrow.
