On a bright late February day the view of the Harbour is a Photographers Delight, The replica of the Golden Hind makes you wonder how Drake sailed the Oceans in it. There is a Ferry that crosses Torbay to Torquay on a regular basis.

Visited in February and also in November 2013. Plenty of people around, would imagine it gets very busy during the season. Plenty to see and some different little shops.

Didnt seem much to do there but we did go out of season, so maybe more to do in the summer. We took the ferry to Torquay from the harbour which took approx 30 mins, believe the ferry runs in the summer and only costs £1 each way

Brilliant and beautiful views of boats. Scenic views of the sea. Lovely place to walk around with its shops and bars. Plenty of benches to sit and take in the scenery.

Most cafes were closed and the weather was not very nice. It's a harbour! I imagine it to be a very pleasant place in the summer.

Brixham harbour is wonderful. You can walk all around it, or there are plenty of seats to just sit and relax. There is always something going on to keep you amused like watching children and adults crabbing or boats coming in at the end of a days fishing. I would well recommend it.

Brixham is looking very clean and tidy lately, they seem to have spent some money on sprucing it up. We had a lovely walk around the harbour, chatted to friendly fishermen and looked across clear blue sea. There is a lot to do in and around Brixham and is well worth a visit. Had fish and Chips and Nicks fish... More
