Brixham

Brixham is an attractive fishing port lying on the south side of Tor Bay. During Victorian times, Brixham was the most important fishing port in south Devon, with a fleet of almost 300 trawlers. It was here that William of Orange first set foot on British soil in 1688 and a stone on the quayside commemorates the event. Local caves, inhabited as early as Stone Age times, are popular visitor attractions. There is a nice beach at nearby Mudstone Bay and Brixham Museum is also open to the public.
