Children love crabbing.  It is simply a fact.  If you don’t already have the gear, then there are lots of places in town that you will be able to pick up some supplies.  Grab a line and some bait and get stuck in along the harbour wall.  This activity can be fun for all ages so make it a family trip out.  Please be sure to always keep your kids under close supervision as no one wants to end a fun day crabbing dripping wet.  How many crabs can you catch?

Shoalstone Pool is a 53-metre sea water swimming pool located on Brixham seafront.  It was built into a natural rockpool during Victorian times.  It is one of the few sea pools left in the UK.  Whether it’s a hot day and you fancy a cooling off, or you simply fancy a cold yet refreshing dip, this pool is the ideal location.  A short walk from the centre of town, stop for a bite to eat before or after your dip.  Look out to sea and admire the views across Torbay as you enjoy your leisurely swim.  This is one of the most unique activities for kids in Brixham, be sure to check it out.


This is the main family attraction in Brixham and combines living history with plenty of pirate fun.  Step back in time and explore the five decks of the full-sized replica of Sir Francis Drake’s Tudor galleon.  Drake was a brilliant navigator and on his first ship, The Golden Hind, he became the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe in an epic expedition.  Take a trip to the harbour and step abroad, exploring the history in modern day.  This is the perfect all-weather activity for Your Devon Escape, with indoor and outdoor areas to explore.
