Among the most popular activities at Torquay International School are the walks and tours of Dartmoor National Park. Dartmoor is very close to Torquay and every Sunday, amateur photographer and Dartmoor Guide Nick Wotton takes small groups of TIS English language students aged 16-70 out on Dartmoor to discover its stunning natural beauty and diverse wildlife. The park also has a mysterious atmosphere, which inspired and provided the setting for one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous Sherlock Holmes stories, The Hound of the Baskervilles. TIS students have not yet found any trace of the ‘beast’, but beautiful scenery and the wild ponies and sheep which roam the park often leave a deep and lasting impression.
