    In the days where multi-million pound theme parks have raised our expectations about what life like models should look like perhaps it should be expected that some people are disappointed. I'd ignore ...  more »

    We had a good time at Dinosaur world and my dinosaur obsessed 2.5 year old loved it. The toilets were small and a little inconvenient particularly with little ones but the displays were informative an...  more »

  • Let's not beat around the bush. This place is just a large room with lots of dinosaur models. Deffinatley one of those places that's as good as you put in to it. Took us about an hour to walk around. It's fun and something different but if you don't buy into it you won't get much out of it.
  • Lovely thing to do if you're a bit bored, have been in Torquay for nearly three months and have exhausted all your other options. Actually no. Can't say I've been to Living Coasts, but I have been to this interesting attraction! I know it's aimed at kids, but me and my partner (both 20+) had a great time doing the quiz and reading all the bits and pieces of info everywhere. Especially for young children this is great: competing with each other to finish the quiz while learning about dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are awesome!
  • My 2 year old son loves dinosaurs and took him there today he loved it and didnt want to leave. Friendly staff and great atmospheres
  • Great fun for the kids they loved finding the information for the question sheet. Had pictures with the dinosaurs and got a certificate each for completing the questionaire. Great value and good few hours fun and informative.
  • A nice way to kill an hour or two when you are around Torquay town. Dinosaur World is a relatively small attraction filled with a mix or large scale models and dioramas populated with toys. There is a decent amount of information provided on placards and a few activities for kids too.

Where to stay in Torquay

Many top-quality seafront hotels offer everything from spa treatments and indoor heated swimming pools, to award-winning bars and front-facing rooms overlooking the town's waterfront promenade.
