Location and Transport

The property is located in the centre of Torquay situated on Union Street. It is strategically located given its proximity to the principal vehicular routes into and out of the town – the A379 and A3022.
It is located within the urban area of Torquay which lies 22 miles (35 km) south of Exeter along the A380 on the north of Torbay, 38 miles (61 km) north-east of Plymouth, adjoining the neighbouring towns of Paignton and Brixham to the west.
The site is within the Town Centre boundary and is adjacent to the Lymington Road car park and the Town Hall and Council Offices.
Adjacent is the Grade II* listed St Mary Magdalene Church and the boundary wall and gate piers south of the church. The Magistrates Court itself is not listed but is located within a Conservation Area.
It is set back from the road. The topography falls away to the rear of the building and as such the building sits into the hillside along Trematon Avenue.
