Brixham Harbour, Brixham

4.6
Brixham Harbour is the "Mother of Deep-Sea Fisheries," the home of the improved trawler, and the lifeblood of the city. The fish market is open to the public on only two special summer days every year. During these 48 hours, would-be fishermen and women buy fresh catches and receive instruction on cleaning and cooking from the fishery experts. Visit the harbor on any day of the year for a view of the port and to taste the catch of the day at a local restaurant.

  • Delightful, dog loving locals keep the gardens and outdoor spaces immaculate. Saturday Market of Crafts and Handmade Anything. At night Harbour lights with restaurants and bars plus laughter and hilarity. Very child friendly too.
  • Loverly quaint fishing Harbour lots to see plenty of cafes and restaurants with all manor of food to choose! You may even see a few local seals feeding in the harbour.
  • Lovely harbour with a replica of the golden hind (which is also a museum). Lots of fishing vessels and recreational vessels alike coming and going at all hours. Lots of seating nearby and shops dotted all around the harbour. It's even nicer on clear nights just sitting and watching the boats come and go.
  • Very popular with visitors to Brixham. Lots of shops and places to eat around the harbour, or just sit on one of the many benches dotted about and watch the world go by.
  • Fantastic place for family time down the beach, watching the seagulls and throwing pebbles into the sea. A windy walk to the light house followed by a beer at one of the great pubs overlooking the harbour... :)
