    Brixham.

    I am going to the above for a week soon.
    Non diving holiday.
    Any recommendations for things to see/do.
    I already have Berry Head nature reserve and the Golden Hind replica on my list.
    Nature and history are my likes. Cafes and restaurants will also be visited. Dog friendly places are best. Real ale a must.
    TIA

    Churchwards cider if you can find it. In comes (used to come) in strong, stronger and very strong. All tasty.

    Keep an eye out for the dolphins that hang around Brixham fishing port (assuming they're still there).
    The views expressed are my own, worth what you've paid for them, are not on behalf of anyone else and not those of any company I worked for etc.

    If you are going to the English seaside and not diving then, no, I'm sorry, there is nothing to see or do. You will have to sit on the beach in the rain with an ice cream like everyone else.
    There are only two things that are infinite, the universe and Tory corruption and I am not sure about the universe.
    With apologies to Albert Einstein.

    Plenty of real ale about. I'll let you do the local research. If you come to Exeter for some history (quay, museum, cathedral, underground passages) I might manage a real ale meet.
    Sadly Tuckers Maltings in Newton Abbot no longer malts, just a taphouse
    Kents Cavern
    Get up on to Dartmoor
    South Devon Railway
    National Trust - Greenway (Agatha Christie) and Coleton Fishacre (Doily Carte)

    Can't advise on dog friendliness, but as the world and his partner have them, there must be plenty of places coping with them. Certainly my wife's allergy is sparked more often.

    Plenty of walking!
    Bought a house in Devon, drank cider from a lemon.

    I have been chastised for not asking the most important question.

    Which is the best chippy?

    I don't really like fish and chips. I am asking for a friend.

    I was going to say to tap you up

    Paul, the Paington to kingswear train is steam and if you pay the extra 50p per person you get to travel in the all glass carriage - ticket for the dog was 1 each way and they get their own ticket - then it's a day in Dartmouth to sort the history side

    Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.
