Brixham is a charming historic town on the South Devon Coast. Along with Torquay and Paignton it is one of the three towns that make up the resort of Torbay on the English Riviera. Out of these three Brixham probably has the strongest identity with its rich maritime history and a thriving fishing fleet.
Brixham is located in the lee of the imposing Berry Head, famous for its Napoleonic connections. In character the town is more reminiscent of nearby harbours such as Dartmouth or Salcombe than it’s near neighbours Paignton & Torquay.
Brixham is famous as a fishing port and this trade continues to flourish with catches being landed daily. In the 1800’s as many as 250 vessels fished out of Brixham, from large trawlers to inshore boats, employing over 1,500 people.
Within the town there are plenty of cafes and quirky shops to be discovered. You’ll also find plenty of traditional pubs where you can sample some local ales and locally produced wine.
One of the best ways to experience Brixham is to take one of the many boat trips across the bay or around to Dartmouth. You’ll learn plenty about the rich heritage and history of the area.
Brixham is also blessed with some amazing coastal scenery. Why not enjoy a coastal walk and venture inland through the lush Devon countryside. No visit would be complete without a climb to the cliff-top nature reserve of Berry Head, past Breakwater Beach and Shoalstone seawater pool.
