About Us

Recently the star of its own TV show, Fish Town, 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’ 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.
