About Us

Brixham has been the centre of the area’s fishing industry for centuries. You can find out more about the town’s maritime past at the Brixham Heritage Museum – or taste the local catch in one of the town’s cafés or restaurants.
Another of Brixham’s maritime attractions is a life-size replica of Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind. You can go on board and take a peek back in time to find out what it was like aboard a galleon in Sir Francis Drakes’ time.
Brixham is home to several festivals including Fishstock, the Heritage Festival, Trawler Races, Brixham Pirate and Shanty Festival (which holds the World Record for a mile of pirates), Pirate Days, a regatta and Brixham Hapnin. Just in case you think it’s all about fish, the summer Cowtown festival celebrates the town’s agricultural side.
For nature lovers, nearby Berry Head is a National Nature Reserve and gateway site for the UNESCO-supported English Riviera Global Geopark, while the South West Coast Path offers breath-taking walks. If you want to learn more check out the Geopark Discovery Packages and other Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust Events.
Nearby Breakwater Beach has a cupboard full of awards, including the Breakwater Beach Blue Flag, Quality Coast Award, and is a Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide Recommended Beach.
