Devon is packed full of great days out with kids. However, under current circumstances not all have been able to reopen.

Other Devon attractions and activities

Devon steam trains and trams

A ride on a vintage railway is always a fun day out for families. Expect things to be a little different this year as social distancing and face masks will be required.

Here’s the Devon steam trains that have announced they are running in July 2020:

Visit a beach 

You can’t visit Devon with kids and not go to the seaside. However, while Devon beaches are open for business, things are inevitably a bit different at the moment. Check whether car parks, toilet and cafe facilities are open before you travel.

Here are the best beaches in South Devon for families and the best North Devon beaches.

Devon walks with kids

Who’s up for some fresh air? Countryside and coast walks abound in Devon making lots of socially distanced days out possible in July.

Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks have plenty of routes where you can get away from the crowds and enjoy a quiet ramble. Be aware that Dartmoor Visitor Centres do not reopen until 25 July.

Here’s some short walks on Exmoor to try with your family and seven of our favourite Dartmoor walks to do with kids, including a few that are suitable for toddlers and pushchairs.

Devon country parks also offer level paths for walking and cycling with kids. Car parks and some facilities are open to visitors too:

National Trust in Devon

The National Trust has several properties in Devon and has reopened some grounds and gardens to visitors. Saltram House, Killerton, Buckland Abbey, Greenway, Castle Drogo and Cotehele are all partially open.

National Trust car parks on the Devon coast have also reopened where possible.

Find out what’s open and how to book entry to properties in advance by visiting the National Trust website.
