Did you know...Brixham is the home of Britain’s largest fishing fleet?
Situated in Torbay, the fishing town of Brixham is a charming destination for the traditional family holiday. This historic and quaint port sways many to visit Brixham every year - the town’s sloping cobbled streets and traditional seaside shops create a laidback atmosphere, making Brixham perfect for a family getaway.
Torbay’s only open-air tidal pool can be found at nearby Shoalstone beach and is free of charge for all. If you fancy a relaxed walk that’s suitable for the whole family, head east of Brixham to the nearby Berry Head. With panoramic views of the bay, this country park and nature reserve includes a Napoleonic fort, the smallest lighthouse in the UK and opportunity for some refreshment.
Those based in Brixham may wish to explore further afield during their stay, so why not take the ferry to Torquay and keep your eyes peeled for dolphins as you glide across the bay? Or hop on board the Dartmouth Steam Railway at Churston to explore Kingswear, Dartmouth or Paignton.
