Brixham

Holidays in Brixham are like no other. It is more than just a fishing town. It is a place where you can explore arts, culture, food, and unique attractions.

Brixham is the ideal place for a holiday. With a beautiful harbour, stunning sea views, and family fun to be had, explore this pocket of the English Riviera.

The town has always been centred around the harbour, where heritage trawlers fight for space with dayboats heading out to sea. They bring home their daily catch to the famous fish market – the heart of England’s Seafood Coast. This fish market provides the freshest seafood to many of the local restaurants in the town.

Brixham holds a Pirate Festival each year. The festival was started in 2007 by a group of locals to simply ‘liven up a quiet bank holiday’. It has since grown into a spectacle that attracts people from all over. With live displays and historic sailing ships docked in the port, there are lots of activities for all ages to get involved in. The festival hosts live music all weekend, showing off the best local bands. It is one to not miss.

There are so many activities to try on your holidays in Brixham. Head to Shoalstone Pool, a sea pool located past the breakwater, where you can enjoy a cold-water swim during the summer months. Or to Berry Head National Nature Reserve and enjoy a stroll and the views across Tor Bay. Or head down to The Golden Hind, and explore the five decks of Sir Francis Drake’s Tudor galleon.

The town is home to various venues for arts, history and culture. Visit the artist corner on the strand where artists work during the day. Stop to watch as they produce stunning pieces live and perhaps purchase one to remember your holiday in Brixham by. Or head to the Brixham Heritage Museum; first opened to show off the town's past. Step inside and learn all about the town's story on your Brixham holidays.
