Brixham Fish Market Tours

On 1st June 2022 to 26th October 2022 Brixham

Early risers won’t want to miss the opportunity to get a fascinating insight into behind-the-scenes operations at England’s largest fish market.

You will see the operational side of the daily fish auction process with up to 40 different species of fish landed and get an insight into how this fascinating process works. You'll leave with an understanding of what’s involved in getting the fish from sea to plate, learn about day boats & trawlers and there may even be a chance to see some grey seals which often frequent the harbour side!

To finish off the morning, you'll enjoy a delicious fish breakfast at Mitch Tonks’ Rockfish restaurant, situated right next door.

The tours are very popular and with only 30 people on each tour they recommend that you book well in advance. On selected dates 1st June to 26th October.

  • A great day out - The railway is fantastic and all the staff were very kind, polite and only to happy to give any assistance necessary. Can't wait to do it all again but with the grandchildren next time. Thank you to all the staff.
  • Trip back in time - What a fantastic experience. The train ride from Paignton is a gentle trip with stunning views. Arriving in Kingswear you can almost imagine how people in days gone by must have felt. A short ferry ride takes you into Dartmouth which is a stunning little town.
  • Lovely day out - We decided on a steam train and boat ride day. The train was lovely, and the boat ride was a lot of fun with an entertaining guide, which one of my teenage daughters found hilarious!
