“Ferry Crossing and Double Decker Bus route”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We went there by ferry from Torquay and went back on the double decker bus. We thoroughly enjoy the return trip on the bus as the views were beautiful. We were told when we arrived at the harbour that the ferry would be leaving shortly. It did not arrive for about 25 mins and the people before us had been told the same thing and they had already been waiting a good ten minutes so beware check the timetable

“Spectacular views over the harbour, good fish and chips.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Brixham has a lovely harbour with one of the best fish and chip shops on the sea front, forgot the name but it has a black and white canopy and everyone will tell you which one it is. There is also a Coffee Company coffee shop that sells huge home made cakes, one is enough to share, and very reasonably priced. The Smugglers and Pirates cove is interesting especially for children. A pleasant holiday destination with a mish mash of local shops, not full of high street stores. Lovely atmosphere walking around and very relaxed.

“Great working harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Love Brixham Harbour. It is great to sit (there is plenty of seating round the harbour) and watch the boats and the World go by. Very relaxing.

“Beautiful little fishing village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

What a lovely place to visit & stay.
My husband & I visited Brixham one day (we were staying in Torbay/Torquay) by boat (£2 for a return).
It has plenty of places to eat/drink, whether you want a quick snack, full dinner or a cream Tea as the Harbour side is FULL of restaurants!
The local shops are lovely to stroll down & browse & you can have a nice leisurely stroll along the Harbour to the lighthouse taking in the atmosphere & boats. Great place for crabbing too!
Will definitely be returning.
