Always something new to see, from fishing boats to pleasure boats. A proper working port, the largest fishing port in England. A good selection of storyboards round the harbour.

It was a lovely nice harbour, walked along the harbour side and shops all around. Lots of people walked along the harbour shelter, few of them were fishing. Especially in nice weather you can eat, shop, walk and watch for a day out.

Brixham can be lively at night but a walk round the harbour during the day is a delight. There is so much going on and lots to do and see.

Brixham is a working fishing port but it is geared to welcome holiday makers from anywhere. There are bars, restaurants, tea rooms and take-away's. The harbour is lively and regular ferry's visit other seaside towns in the area. Home to a replica of the Golden...More

Been coming here all my life and it’s hardly changed over 30 years. Lots of little independent shops and eateries. Lots of seafood available and a really nice atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Took the ferry from Torquay (£3.00pp return) about a half hour journey. Spent a good few hours here. Really nice harbour and good local shops and pubs/ restaurants. There is a Golden Hind replica and statue of William of Orange. Brixham is well worth a...More

Great harbour. Lovely walks around it. The old harbour wall which was constructed as part of the D day landings shipping launch is well worth the long walk to view the lighthouse at the end. Lovely town too.

There is a car park by the harbour but Brixham itself is very small to walk around.

there is always enough to do and don't forget that there is a configuration of resorts along the coast easily accessible by bus including Torquay. there are plenty of exhibitions on year-round not to mention art galleries.
