Things to do in South Devon

Traine Farm is only seven miles from Plymouth where you can enjoy most water sports from sailing to diving. Bird watchers are able to view many species in the surrounding area and walkers can enjoy a leisurely stroll along the coastal path. Boat trips can be arranged and allow you to explore the River Tamar.

The historic Barbican area is renowned for its heritage, cobbled streets, quaint shops, fine restaurants and bars. Around the city you will find a wide selection of tourist attractions including the National Marine Aquarium with its sharks, Plymouth Pavilions with its leisure pool and ice rink and The Theatre Royal where regularly London West End Shows start their life. If you are feeling adventurous, try the dry ski slope or toboggan run, open all year round. Shoppers will enjoy the new Drake Circus shopping mall, offering a wide selection of top retail outlets.

The historical site of the Hoe should not be missed where Sir Francis Drake played his famous game of Bowls whilst the Spanish Armada approached. Looking out to sea, you can only imagine what must have run through his mind.
