Activities and Family Activities in Plymouth
Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of things to do. If you love getting out and exploring the outdoors, Plymouth is the perfect base for exploring the Devonshire coast and rolling hills of nearby Dartmoor, either on foot, horseback or by bike.
Nothing beats getting your walking boots on and heading out for a stomp along the coast, and with the South West Coast Path right on your doorstep it’s an ideal opportunity for exploring the rugged beauty of the Devonshire cliffs.
Want to get up close and personal with a whole menagerie of animals? Pay a trip to the soon to be world famous Dartmoor Zoo, just a few miles outside Plymouth. The Zoo is the inspiration behind the new Cameron Crowe movie ‘We Bought a Zoo’ starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson, released in the UK in March 2012 and is bound to be a popular choice for animal lovers of all ages.
