What's On in Brixham


Brixham isn’t just about fishing. It’s still one of the busiest fishing ports in the UK and a working town, but it’s also a place where you can discover a range of arts and culture, excellent local food and some unique attractions. Brixham attracts visitors for its character, charm and combination of tradition and an enthusiasm for contemporary styles.


Originally a Saxon settlement, Brixham was the landing place of William of Orange during the Glorious Revolution, and many of the town’s inhabitants, who are descendants of the Dutch army, have Dutch surnames. Many of the street names in Brixham reflect the town’s history, with some also bearing Dutch influences.

Things to do

If you like art, you’ll love Brixham. The town has a great range of art galleries featuring local and visiting artists. You can visit the artists’ corner on the Strand to see artists working, if the weather permits. Brixham museum is packed with interesting exhibits from the town’s cultural and maritime heritage, while there are plenty of coastal tours and fishing trips by boat on offer if you want to get a taste of Brixham’s maritime heritage.

Food and drink

Being a fishing port, you can expect a good choice of seafood restaurants in the Brixham area. While if you’re self catering then the excellent range of fishmongers, butchers and greengrocers supplying local produce will enable you to rustle up some very tasty dishes of your own from South Devon’s finest food.

Something a little different

A landmark attraction of Brixham is the Golden Hind replica. A fascinating recreation of Sir Frances Drake’s flagship, you and your family can experience five decks of Tudor history and adventure. The exhibition is ideal for schoolchildren, with various activities geared around specific curriculum skills. Best of all, the Golden Hind allows you to step into history, experiencing the real feel and atmosphere of the Tudor Age of Discovery.
