Get your summer holiday off to a flying start by visiting one of Devon’s Top Attractions.
With over 40 top days out across the county, there’s a perfect day out for you to enjoy whatever your taste or interest.
These award-winning attractions offer great value for money, especially when budgets are tight, providing a fun-packed day out with extra entertainment included in a visit. Plus, there are several free entry attractions to visit too.
A top attraction is never too far away, and they are all easy to reach, with 34 of the top days reachable by public transport, either by Stagecoach or Great Western Railway. So why not get out and about this Summer and leave the car at home? If you do visit by car, some attractions now have electric charging points so you can re-charge the car whilst you are having fun.
There’s plenty to get excited about, with a large variety of attractions ranging from adrenaline-packed theme parks, outdoor adventures, and natural attractions on Dartmoor. Visit the animal encounters at wildlife parks, zoos and farm parks, heritage and history attractions, steam railways, boat trips and tram rides, enchanting gardens, and mysterious castles. There’s even a unique Abbey to visit or island destination, complete with puffins!
