As we look forward to another sunny weekend, there’s plenty of great places to visit, enjoy some cool refreshments and soak up the sun. 

Here is our top five to help you make the most of your weekend.

Choose the perfect waterfront location to enjoy a cool glass of wine, or beer whilst watching the awesome Plymouth ThunderCat Racing UK. Pier One or The Terrace would be a great option. The race kicks off on 16 and 17 July with two full days of action packed racing on the water.

Enjoy a boat trip over to Cawsands with Plymouth Boat Trips, where The Cawsand Ferry runs daily, between the Barbican Landing Stage and the beautiful beaches and Cornish villages of Cawsand and Kingsand. If you’re feeling energetic take a walk to the Rame peninsula. You will find some great quaint pubs in Cawsand and Kingsand, for some deserved light refreshment.

Enjoy an ice-cream on the Barbican, where we have some of Plymouth’s best ice-cream parlours, offering a wide range of fabulous flavours. Why not give them a try, here are some of our favourites:  Pilgrims Ice Cream, Valenti's Gelato Venue or Berties Ice Cream and Homemade Desserts.

Take a refreshing dip in the art-deco Tinside Pool, or maybe just chill in a deckchair on the sun deck, one of the best places in Plymouth to soak up the sun and enjoy the stunning views of Plymouth Sound and Plymouth Hoe.

Travel back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the seas and meet Dolly – a curious and adventurous dolichorhynchops – as she travels through the most dangerous oceans in history. Along the way, she encounters long-necked plesiosaurs, giant turtles, enormous fish, fierce sharks, and the most dangerous sea monsters of all, the mosasaur.

National Geographic's trademark authenticity combines with innovative imagery, powerful storytelling, and the Market Hall's immersive dome to create a truly unforgettable experience for all the family.
