Brixham is a bustling harbour side town famous as a fishing port, and has one of the largest fishing fleets in the United Kingdom. The fresh catch is sold in the Fish Markets located on the quayside. Brixham is placed in such a way that the accommodation is located around the heart of the town creating a warm and cosy ambience. The town has a long enriched history and is famous for its Napoleonic connections, with the landing of William of Orange on the Quay in 1688. There is a very impressive marina, eternally popular with the boating fraternity, and many fine restaurants.DESCRIPTION
