Life in the bustling fishing town of Brixham centres around the picturesque harbour, with fishing boats bringing their catch to the famous Fish Market. Fishstock - the English Riviera's renowned urban music and seafood festival - takes place annually at the new Fish Quay on Brixham's harbour.
Book one of the many boat trips across the bay, including wildlife "sea-faris" where you could spot dolphins and porpoise or fishing trips in beautifully restored heritage sailing vessels.
On land, discover a full-size replica of the Golden Hind, the ship belonging to Francis Drake - who lived and worked in Brixham - and find out more about Brixham's maritime past at the free-entry Heritage Museum.
If this is too energetic, take a relaxing dip in Shoalstone pool, the iconic Art Deco seawater lido and enjoy a meal or a cream tea at one of the many local cafes, restaurants and pubs, facing the waterfront.
There is so much to do here, make sure you leave enough time to explore all Brixham has to offer!
