To any casual observer, Brixham seems to be a quaint and quiet fishing port and a sleepy town, tucked away in the south corner of Torbay on the English Riviera. However, spend a little time in the town and you will soon realise that it is anything but sleepy.
A typical day in the bustling town will reveal an incredible vibrancy, full of excitement!
Between the restless fish market that handles the highest value catch of seafood per annum in England and the RNLI lifeboat dashing in and out, the harbour plays host to a whole year of exciting events.
Airshows, incredible firework displays and a fabulous replica of Sir Francis Drake's Golden Hinde, to the Pirate Festival, Brixfest, the world famous Trawler Race, regular craft markets, renowned pubs and restaurants and so much more. You will never be far away from exciting things to see and do!
Not only is Brixham a truly exciting place to visit, but it also has an incredibly rich and fascinating fishing and maritime heritage!
So what better time to visit than during one of the biggest dates all year round! Visit Brixham on September 8th for the incredible Fishstock Brixham festival for a small taste of all that the wonderful town has to offer!
