Brixham Pirate Festival

On 4th May 2024 to 6th May 2024

Visit Brixham on the first Bank Holiday weekend in May and join a mass gathering of Pirates from all walks of life and drawn from far and wide. With amazing live music, street entertainers, a Shanty Town, family area, living history exhibits and skirmishes (incredibly loud bangs and cannon fire!). It's a truly entertaining (and very exhausting!) day....

  • Excellent trip out - On recommendation from our hotel in Torquay we booked this and we were not disappointed. Steam train then ferry over to Dartmouth + a lovely river cruise for an hour included. We will visit again.
  • A big thumbs up... - A great time was had by all. The staff were really friendly and great at explaining. We took the steam train then hopped onto the boat where we spent some time in Dartmouth. It's a lovely touch that even the dog gets a ticket. The views from the steam train were so pretty the train and boat were both very clean and comfortable. A big thumbs up from us!
  • Brilliant! - We had to write to tell you what a thoroughly enjoyable trip we had on your "Steam Train & Cruise". The train was brilliant and the cruise was a revelation. We will be back to experience it again. Thank you.
