If you're visiting South Devon this Easter, we have compiled a list of our top 5 best days out in South Devon this Easter.

1. Woodlands Family Theme Park, Dartmouth

Best for Family Fun

With 11 play zones full of rides, attractions,  zoo-farm with interactive activities and a falonry centre with displays, there is something for everyone in this 100 acre family park. A great all-weather theme park for the whole family.

2. Dartmouth Castle, Dartmouth

The best for conservation

One of the most picturesquely-sited fortresses in England. For over 600 years, Dartmouth Castle has guarded the narrow entrance to the Dart Estuary and the vibrant port of Dartmouth. This fascinating complex of defences was begun in 1388 by John Hawley.

3. Paignton Zoo, Paignton

The best for spotting endangered wildlife

Paignton Zoo is not just a great day out with over 2,000 creatures to see and plenty of indoor play areas, but it's also an education, scientific and conservation charity dedicated to protecting our global wildlife heritage and inspiring in people a respect for animals, plants and the environment.

4. Coleton Fishacre, Kingswear

The best for gardens

Travel back in time to the Jazz Age at the country home of the D'Oyly Carte family with its magical 30-acre garden where paths weave through glades, past tranquil ponds and tender plants in the moist and sheltered valley.

5. Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company

The best for adventure on both land and water

Enjoy a day out on steam trains, boats and paddle streamers taking you to Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmouth, Kingswear, Totnes and along the River Dart.
