Torbay, UK “The English Riviera”
Breathtaking scenery, fabulous beaches, top attractions and fascinating history... This is why we love Torbay, and this is why we know it will be the perfect host location for Mr World 2014.
Situated in the South West of England, Torbay stretches along the stunning scenery of the county of South Devon. Gentle rolling countryside, across high moorland, along river valleys and across picturesque coastline makes Torbay a memorable location to visit.
For two weeks, this award winning region will be the backdrop for a series of challenges and events that will define the Mr World Competition. With this year’s competition taking place at the beginning of summer, the spectacular scenery will certainly play a part in the Sports & Extreme challenges, which will look to take advantage of the environments at their disposal.
With a rich array of attractions scattered across the region, there is plenty of activities to keep the contestants busy throughout their stay, and make this year’s Mr World unforgettable for everyone involved.
The host resort and final venue are both based in Torquay, the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the English Riviera. Cosmopolitan Torquay boasts stunning beaches, fascinating attractions and superb restaurants, some of the best in the Torbay region.
Host Resort - Marquis Hotel
For the duration of the competition the contestants will be staying at the stunning Marquis Hotel in Torquay.
Recently re-opened after extensive refurbishment this modern take on a Victorian seaside hotel is in the heart of the English Riviera, and offers comfort and luxury in a beautiful seaside setting. With state of the art facilities available to the contestants, the Marquis Hotel is the perfect base for this year’s competition.
Final Venue - The Riviera International Conference Centre
We are pleased thrilled to announce that the Riviera International Conference Centre (RICC) will be the venue for the 2014 Mr World Final.
The RICC is located in the heart of South Devon just a short stroll from the Torquay seafront, and is the perfect choice to host this year’s final. The state of the art auditorium at the heart of the centre will be where the drama unfolds on the 15th of June.
Opened in 1987, the centre has established itself within the heart of the community as the leading events centre in the region, developing strong links with local sports clubs, schools and charities. The RICC is committed to delivering successful events ‘whatever the format and lead time’ and we know that Mr World 2014 will be a great success!
