    Find Family Days Out In Plymouth

    As one of the largest towns in Devon, there are lots of things to do in Plymouth. Surrounded by golden sands, it’s a vibrant waterfront city with lots of attractions, activities and entertainment to keep you busy.

    The Merchant’s House Museum provides a window into the lives of those from the 17th century. The seven rooms take you through different themes such as transport and the Victorian era, and the house itself is a stark visual reminder of a time gone by.

    Over in The Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery you can see an extensive collection of fine art, natural history and archeology. Many of the exhibitions are hands-on, giving children the chance to get interactive plus there’s a family gallery trail you can print off and follow.

    If you enjoy a good trail the Curious About Plymouth Treasure Hunt will be right up your street. Choose one of two themes and then get together as a family to follow clues and solve puzzles as you make your way around this maritime port and discover so much more on this Plymouth family day out.

    You don’t have to get wet to explore the ocean around you. At the National Marine Aquarium you can take a look into the wondrous world of the Atlantic Ocean where you can see sand sharks, nurse sharks and watch eagle rays dance under the water.

    Depending on the time of year you visit, you can either strap on your skates for a turn around the Plymouth Pavilions Ice Rink or step into your cossie for a dip in the Tinside Lido. Either way, there are lots of activities to enjoy!
