Devon has long been a favourite destination for UK holidays or weekends away and Plymouth gives you great access to all the region has to offer. For those looking for some fun and games in the city come rain or shine, there is plenty to keep you occupied. Here are just a few cool ways to amuse yourself on your stay in the historic port city.

Escape rooms

Escape rooms are a new craze sweeping across the nation and visitors to Plymouth can also enjoy this phenomenon at the city’s two popular venues, Roomsmiths and Live Escape Rooms. Participants must complete a series of tasks and puzzles in a limited time to progress through the game and be the first to escape from the venue. They are great fun, especially for those travelling in larger groups.

Virtual reality

Plymouth is home to a virtual reality centre where you can swim with whales, ride a rollercoaster or play games in a virtual world by wearing the latest high-tech headsets. VR offers a great day out for families and friends looking for a thoroughly modern gaming experience.


Casinos can offer a fun night out for adults on holiday whether you are visiting Las Vegas or the South West of England. Plymouth has three casinos including the popular casino on Derry’s Cross which also acts as an all-round entertainment hub. The modern traveller is not restricted to land-based casinos with online facilities now more popular than ever. As a result, you can play all your favourite casino and slot games on sites such as Paddy Power games without leaving the comfort of your hotel room.

Next-level video arcades

Not to be confused with the old style of video arcade traditionally found on British seafronts, the Belong Gaming Arena offers a social space where serious and casual gamers can test their skills on high-powered PCs and the latest consoles. Play with friends or compete against other gamers from around the country in a custom-made gaming environment. You could even enter an eSports tournament and qualify for a major event! Esports are now more popular than ever and there is even an ePremier League tournament.

Something for the kids

If you are travelling with your little ones, Plymouth has plenty to keep them amused. There is the Clip ‘n climb centre which is the UK’s largest climbing centre offering action-packed fun for all the family.

Super Tramp Plymouth is a trampoline park with over 50 trampolines offering a range of fun activities for kids aged 5 years or over. The trampoline park provides a safe environment for this healthy activity. You can even book a trampoline party!
