Brixham Battery Heritage Centre

Battery Gardens and Museum

3.6/5 rating (5 votes)

Brixham Battery is one of only seven remaining original 116 Emergency Batteries built in 1940.

Set across a 14 acre site with outstanding panoramic views of Torbay, Battery Gardens is home to the now abandoned bunkers of the Battery, which was first used in 1586 during the war between England and Spain.

Around Battery Gardens can be seen the various emplacements, and the training room has been turned into a small but interesting museum.

Many of the exhibits have been loaned to the museum by local people, which adds to the quaint charm.

There is limited free parking nearby, with good disabled access.

Opening Times
Sunday, Monday and Friday: 2pm till 4pm 
Also special Open Days throughout the year.
Please check openings with the attraction before travelling.
