Really fascinating tour and insight into this industry which defines Brixham. And a delicious breakfast to follow! Very well run and organised, and a donation goes to the Fisherman’s Mission too. Well worth doing and a bargain at £15.

This is a great tour even with an early, 5.50am, start. The tour is interesting and the volunteers who are the tour guides reaĺly know their stuff. The fish breakfast afterwards, at Rockfish is a great bonus and definitely worth getting up for!

Recently thoroughly enjoyed this experience having lived in Brixham for over 70 years I was amazed at the technology on view and the different species of fish that go through the market. The breakfast was very good as well.

Just returned from our first Fish Market tour which we thoroughly enjoyed. Although the quantity of fish today was relatively small, it was still a fascinating experience to see the operation and auction at close hand. Our guides were excellent and kept us on track....More
