The Brixham Fish Market Tours

Published: Wednesday 12th Jun 2013

If you've ever wanted to learn more about Britain's coastal industries, now's your chance, as Brixham Fish Market prepares to hold tours once again.

The Brixham Fish Market Tours give visitors to the area the chance to learn a little more about this traditional industry, seeing the fishermen at work and over 40 different types of fish at the auctions. Over £25 million of fish is landed and auctioned in the town every year, much of which is sent on to top restaurants across the nation.

The tour guide this year is the head of Brixham Trawler Agents, Rick Smith, who has decades of experience in the industry. The tour will be topped off with a delicious full English breakfast at the nearby Fishermen's Mission.

The tour kicks off this June 26th, with additional dates available throughout the summer, and it should make for a great morning out for anyone enjoying a break in local Devon holiday cottages. Spaces are limited however, so booking is necessary and can be done by calling 07410 617931. Tickets cost £8.
