Brixham Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout South East Devon...

One of the most picturesque of all the towns in the Torbay region, Brixham is as popular with artists as it is with beach-loving holidaymakers. The village sits high above a harbour where there is a replica of Sir Francis Drake’s ship ‘The Golden Hind’.

A statue celebrates the fact that William of Orange landed here in 1688 as he prepared to become William III. The nearby promontory of Berry Head has the remains of fortifications from the Napoleonic Wars while caves in the area have been inhabited for thousands of years.
