Why you should base your Bowls Tour in Torquay
Torquay is renowned as a holiday destination and boasts a number of excellent hotels. It is also a great base for a bowls tour with 10 clubs in Torbay and 9 other clubs within a 10 mile drive of Torquay town centre. Some coaches bringing a tour do not remain in Torquay for the duration of the stay. In those circumstances there are coach companies that can meet your transport needs for day trips as well as transport to bowls clubs.
