An early morning visit to Brixham's fish market is the most authentic way to experience coastal life in the southwest.
Local fishermen haul in fish worth more than £25 million a year, the highest value catch in the country. Huge seabass, stacks of scallops and trays of plaice go under the hammer every morning and are delivered to top restaurants across Europe.
Tours of the market are held by Rick Smith, who has decades of experience in the fish trade. The hustle and bustle of buyers haggling with fisherman while the rest of Brixham still sleeps followed by breakfast at the Fishermen's Mission as the sun rises over the harbour is more than worth dragging yourself out of bed for.
