Brixham    by Karen Durant  



Golden Hind at Brixham


holiday cottages Brixham is situated just a few miles from Torquay and is well worth a visit. It is most well-known as an established fishing port and has one of the largest fishing fleets in the United Kingdom. Therefore as you would expect, there are a wealth of fish restaurants available here. You can also buy fresh fish directly on the quayside. The town is fully of character with lots of unique shops around the harbour. There are also some kiosks where you can book daily excursions such as fishing trips, ship wreck exploration, shark fishing or trips up the river Dart.

The most famous attraction at Brixham must be the museum ship the Golden Hind, which is a replica of Sir Francis Drake's flagship. It is permanently moored on the quayside. Sir Francis Drake was the first Englishman to sail around the world in an epic adventure of discovery and plunder (1577-1580).

You can also visit the Brixham Heritage Museum, which is housed in the old police station. Founded in 1957, the museum offers an insight into the history of Brixham and its people.
