Pilgrim Open Day

Location – we are on the Town Pontoon in Brixham Harbour opposite the Prince William Pub. Postcode TQ5 9BP.

Parking – park in the Breakwater car park or in the Marina multi-story which are both on Berry Head Road. Walk down onto the foreshore back towards Brixham, past the Lifeboat Station and the Marina entrance and keep going until you see the Town Pontoon. Pilgrim’s tall masts and characteristic style will be there for you to explore.

Public Transport – Take the No 12. bus from Torquay seafront or Paignton Train Station and alight at the Brixham terminus. Follow signs down to the harbour and walk towards Breakwater and you’ll soon see Pilgrim on the town pontoon in all her glory! Alternatively take the ferry from Torquay Harbour and you’ll pass Pilgrim on your way in – just walk round the harbour to the other side when you disembark the ferry.
