Brixham Harbour, Brixham

4.4
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.

  • Quaint cobbled street harbour holiday destination or day trip. Many affordable boat trips to nearby attractions including Paignton. Loads of character.
  • Love living here I moved from Birmingham and loved last 2 years feel like a constant holiday lots of beaches all round it made me get into photography seriously great places to eat and drink friendly people lots of events all year round and on the night it's looks even better
  • Lovely place to visit if in Brixham. Exact replica of pirate ship which you can pay to go on. Lovely restaurants with amazing views.
  • Looks a little run down and tacky. Lots of charity shops in the town. Looks much better on TVs 'Fish Town'. Disappointed
  • Bustling, working harbour. Enjoyed visiting again after 15 years.
