Loved the hustle and bustle of a proper working harbour. Fishing boats unloading or getting ready for sea. Ferrys coming or going and family's crab fishing. Plenty of places to eat drink and toilets nearby.

We came here today but we're very disappointed. The harbour was looking tired and a bit tacky, not as good as I remember it being. We walked through the town which had a few vacant shops and quite a few charity shops. We stayed for...More

Got the boat over from Torquay. It's a working harbour with fishing boats in the harbour and great little restaurants around the harbour side. Brixham is definitely worth a visit if your in the area.

Spent a week in a rented cottage on the north side of the harbour above the shops and restaurants. A smashing little town with a bustling commercial harbour and marina. Easy access to transportation either by sea or rad to nearby towns of Dartmouth and...More

Brixham harbour is just so quaint. Sweet and tasteful shops, stunning boats and plenty of history all described on little plaques across the harbour. Perfect for a day time stroll or a night time meander. Look out for the fishermen and their amazing rusty old...More

I agree,I first visited Brixham in October. I feared the same thing..... Don't worry,this is a lovely little town anytime. There will be a couple of places that close early,but only because we,as tourists don't visit them... More
