A lovely harbour. With lots of shops, bars and restaurants to visits. Check out the little streets and lane, plenty of steps for the fitter people among you to gain access to the different levels of brixham. Brixham harbour is push chair friendly too.

There is a car park by the harbour but Brixham itself is very small to walk around.
