Seaside ‘chandeliers’ added to lights in Torquay Harbor

Torquay Harbor has been illuminated with multi-coloured lights in another addition to the town’s waterfront lighting scheme.

Chandeliers of light can now be seen surrounding the harbor in various alternating colors.

Video taken last night (December 12) shows the harbor with its latest show which is a new addition to the lighting display that has appeared along the seafront over the past few months.

Torquay seafront first had a £200,000 lighting upgrade which illuminates the harbor with yellow, green, red and pink lights.

The first phase of city lighting was switched on in early August after a slight delay due to supply issues and extensive testing.



Last month Torquay’s Rock Walk was outfitted with dazzling neon lights in what has been dubbed a ‘stairway to heaven’.

Five pedestal lamps have also been refurbished at the top of the steps – replacing the old broken lamps.

And less than two weeks ago, 10 lampposts along the Royal Terrace Gardens were lit, projecting designs including a butterfly and flower patterns onto the pathway below.



However, the design has infuriated some locals, calling the new additions an “eye-sucker” and a “waste of money”, with some people comparing them to speed cameras.

The light columns are part of the town’s lighting display as part of £750,000 funding secured by Torbay Council from the town’s fund.

The light chandeliers in the port are now the last to appear.
