Plymouth family friendly itinerary

Family members of all ages can enjoy a day out together in Plymouth! We've suggested a great day out, so all you need to do is head out into the sunshine and make happy memories.


Start the day with a hearty brunch at Seco Lounge or Column Bakehouse in Royal William Yard.

After breakfast hop on board Plymouth Boat Trips for the quick journey over to Mount Edgcumbe House and Gardens. With hundreds of acres to explore, there's plenty of space for walks or a paddle on the beach. Older children and teens will want to get stuck in at Adventure Segway. Take on a Segway Skills assault course and venture out, gliding for miles on an instructor-led expedition across the park.

For lunch, catch a boat back to the historic Barbican and indulge in some delicious fresh fish and chips for lunch. Why not treat yourself to a cream tea too, though be sure to do it cream first, the proper Devon way!

In the afternoon take a walk up to Plymouth Hoe, there's plenty of space here for children to run around, fly kites and play games. If it's a sunny day, go for a dip in Tinside Lido, an art deco, salt water swimming pool.

Wander further along the waterfront and you'll discover West Hoe Park where there's lots to keep both big and small kids entertained! Play crazy golf, bounce on the trampolines, ride on the miniature train and explore the pirate themed Treasure Island Park.

For dinner head back to the city centre to Drake Circus the Barcode for a relaxed meal at one of their four family friendly restaurants, including ZizziNando'sCosy Club and Five Guys

Then top of your evening here with a movie at Cineworld or head for some indoor adventure golfing at Paradise Island Adventure Golf.
