Evenings and weekends
Food and Drink
When it comes to eating out in Newton Abbot you won’t be limited to the usual ‘pub grub’. With pubs such as The Thatched Cottage serving great local Devon produce and Ye Olde Cider Bar serving the most authentic cider, you will never be short of a place to go.
Trago Mills - Devon's discount and leisure experience
Trago’s amazing Family Fun Park is perfect for a family day out. Set amongst 110 acres with views out towards Dartmoor, you’ll find a choice of fantastic rides for all the family. After strolling around the shops, enjoy a cream tea with lovely views over the garden park.
A day at the races
If you fancy a flutter head over to Newton Abbot Racecourse, one of the UK’s leading summer jumps courses.
Relax by the sea
Newton Abbot is a short drive from most of South Devon's beautiful coast, so grab a bucket and spade and head to the beach. From one of Britain's highest cliff top promenades at Babbacombe Bay, you can spot seals and dolphins playing offshore. Check out Hanbury's for some freshly caught fish and the chunkiest homemade chips.
Feeling adventurous? If you like to live life on the edge, why not head to Go Ape, the UK's number 1 forest high ropes course. If heights aren't for you, there are plenty of cycle trails and segway paths too keep you busy. Don't forget to pack a picnic, you'll need to refuel after all that hard work.
