Brixham Pirate Festival as seen on TV

Don’t miss out! As seen on ITV’s This Morning today 6th May 2024.

The Brixham Pirate Festival began in 2002 when members of the community decided to create an event to liven up one of the quietest bank holidays of the year.

Since those humble beginnings, the festival has grown into one of the biggest pirate gatherings in the world, with thousands of people descending from all over the world for a long weekend of swashbuckling fun and seaside shenanigans set against the authentic backdrop of the historic port.

The festival finishes today so don’t miss out! There are bands playing, sea shantys, entertainment, food and much more. On until 4 pm. It’s just 8.5 miles from Torquay centre.

If you’re staying in fabulous Torquay and interested in the naval history of England, you can  visit the Golden Hind museum ship in Brixham at any time. 

This full-sized replica of explorer Sir Francis Drake‘s iconic ship has been a feature of picturesque Brixham harbour for over 50 years, entertaining and educating thousands of visitors – as well as being featured on many television programmes and films.

Explore above and below the five decks, with many hands on-exhibits, giving visitors of all ages a wonderful insight into life aboard the Tudor galleon.
