Welcome to the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark – One of Earth’s Extraordinary Places! A beautiful landscape of dramatic changes, of exploration, discovery and fun. UNESCO Global Geoparks share the story of our Planet. A Geopark is an area of globally recognised, unique geological interest designated by UNESCO. A place where you can touch a very special part of the Earth’s story and be amazed by the extraordinary landscapes, mountains, coastlines, places and people. Our Geopark, covering the entire area of Torbay, is Naturally Inspiring. It shares stories of a landscape untouched by glaciation unseen elsewhere in the world. We will be linking up with other UNESCO Global Geopark locations from around the world.
