Brixham Weather and Climate
Situated in the south west of England, Brixham and Torbay enjoy a mild year-round climate. It’s not difficult to see why the English Riviera has some of the best weather in the country. Protected from the prevailing south-westerly winds by the Tors of Dartmoor, the bay enjoys a micro climate that other resorts can only dream of.
During Victorian times, Torbay’s sunny weather was considered a real tonic during colder periods in northern England, and this region soon became known as the English Riviera and is renowned as one of the UK’s best all year round seaside resorts.
Torbay reliably experiences some of the longest days and highest sunlight hours per day than anywhere else in England and the United Kingdom. The winter climate may be mild, but prone to periods of wet weather, while the summers are usually hot, with temperatures in July and August regularly topping 25°C / 77°F and on occasion, reaching more than 30°C / 86°F.
Today Torbay bustles with tourists during the height of summer, but if you’d prefer quieter holidays, there are often weeks of sunshine and blue skies in the April, May and September
The long hot summer days and mild winters make Brixham and Torbay a great year round resort.
