The South Devon maritime port of Brixham in Devon is still as lively and bustling today as it always was and offers plenty of fun for family holidays. The pretty multi-colour painted fishermen's houses, many now beautifully restored as holiday cottages, sit above the harbour like a patchwork quilt shining in the bright sunshine.

Brixham sits in the Southern corner of Torbay opposite Torquay, and is a mecca for yachtsmen and sailors worldwide. The town plays host to the replica of Sir Francis Drake's 'Golden Hind' moored and which can be visited all year round. Drake's ship is only one of Brixham Harbour's attractions. Arrive early to see trawlers landing their catches to be auctioned off at the Quayside Fishmarket, catch a terry across Torbay to Torquay and back or just hire a little motorboat of your own and set off for an afternoon's mackerel fishing in the bay.
