Have a family day out in Devon
Whether you are visiting or live here a family day out in Devon allows you to choose from a whole range of activities and outings. However, what you choose to do depends on the age and interests of your family. This page gives an overview, with links to other pages to help you make a decision. (Please note that all links to external websites open in a new window)
Depending on the size and age of your family there are lots of options to choose from. You'll find a selection of things to do on this page that are suitable for all age groups. All the locations have good car parking facilities, a cafe and toilets. You can spend a whole day or just an afternoon.
Most of them have options to buy a ticket for more than one day, so if you or the children love it you can go again and again.
My absolute favourite family day out is to Bicton Park. It’s a blend of historic 18th Century gardens, beautiful trees and 21st century facilities. It's packed with things to look at and there's plenty for everyone. Spend an afternoon or a whole day there, I know you'll love it.
Crealy is another good choice for younger children. It’s more of a 'theme park' type attraction but there are still things that older children and parents can do. Stay all day or have an afternoon there, the choice is yours. For prices and opening times and to buy tickets online visit
The Jurassic Coast can be enjoyed along the whole of the East Devon coastline. Get spectacular views by taking one of the regular double decker buses that run along the whole length. Stop off along the way at some of the following places.
Pecorama near Beer is a large exhibition for model railway enthusiasts of all ages. While you’re there you can also take a ride on the narrow gauge railway and see the lovely gardens.
