Brixham is a lovely fishing town and civil parish in the district of Torbay in the county of Devon. 

Brixham is at the southern end of Torbay, across the bay from Torquay, and fishing and tourism are the major industries.

The town is hilly and built around the harbour which remains in use as a dock for fishing trawlers. It has a focal tourist attraction in the replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship Golden Hind that is permanently moored there.

Brixham plays host to a number of festivals and events throughout the year. 

  • BrixFest
  • Brixham Pirate Festival
  • Brixham Hap'nin
  • RNLI Lifeboat Week
  • Fishstock

The Brixham Pirate Festival is a yearly pirate event which competes for the title of most pirates in one place and this draws visitors from far and wide.

Brixham is home to the Brixham Archers. This is the biggest archery club in the bay and shoots outdoors at their field at Churston. Brixham Archers also use an indoor facility in Brixham. The Archery club was formed in 1969 and has been successful at county and national level competitions.
