Home » Travel » Brixham: Part of the English Riviera


Spring is oficially upon us, with summer not too far away. So with this in mind, it’s the perfect time to start planning your summer holidays. With the cost of travelling outside of the United Kingdom has increased in the last few years, many people planning something a little closer to home.

Travelling down to the South West coast for your Devon holidays via road or train offers a range of idyllic places to visit and some of the best scenery to be found in the UK. The area incorporating the towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, also known as the English Riviera, offers some of the most picturesque coastline to be found in the region and it is no wonder that it is so popular with visitors.

Each of the three seaside towns boasts unique features and attractions while situated in some of the most picturesque South Devon countryside. Brixham is a firm favourite with many visitors, sitting as the most westerly of the three main towns incorporated in the English Riviera. Brixham offers a mix of rural life in a historical fishing and maritime town, presenting visitors with beautiful vistas from its coastline. There’s plenty to see and do around the town, why not venture out to the local nature reserve at Berry Head and visit the Napoleonic fort?

Brixham is often considered slightly more ‘family friendly’ compared some other holiday resort towns on the south coast. If you are looking for a Devon caravan park locally as a base for your family holiday, Brixham would be a good choice as everything is within close and easy reach of the town centre.
