We are always thrilled at Torbay Tourism to tell everyone about new things happening with one of our members and today is no different.


The Smugglers and Pirates Experience in Brixham is a great attraction with an amazing licensed restaurant, gift shop an  now a new Pirate Emporium!


This amazing shop sells everything a pirate or smuggler could want or need from costumes to cutlasses, pirate and smuggling books, gifts and much much more.


The whole shop has been themed and dressed to make it a shopping experience and friendly staff are on hand to help and advice.


All items are reasonably priced and if they haven't got just what you need they will try and source it for you.


So our advice is go over to Brixham and pay the Smugglers and Pirates Experience a visit, you won’t be disappointed
