Map & Directions

Road Directions

Follow the sign posts for Torquay town centre and the harbour.  We are located on Victoria Parade by the inner harbour and the Clock Tower roundabout. For sat navs our post code is TQ1 2BB but be wary as the final instructions direct you off the Clock Tower roundabout on to Park Lane, which is a small side street with a dead end.  Once the Sat Nav has directed you to the Clock Tower roundabout you should see the dinosaurs outside on the pavement. 

Torquay’s Dinosaur World does not have its own parking facilities, but the town has many public pay and display car parks. The closest car parks are Lower Union Street, the Harbour, Meadfoot Road and Beacon Quay. For further information about Torquay car parks please click here.
