Things to do with Children 47 6


Geocaching In the words of one six year old: “a very exciting thing to do, especially if


you have a family”. Geocaching is a good walk enhanced by the challenge of finding one of the thousands of containers (or caches) planted by other enthusiasts. There are several hidden in Dartmouth and on the coast path to Stoke Fleming. For locations and clues download the free app (‘Geocaching’ by Groundspeak Inc) and remember to take a pen to sign the tiny logbook concealed in each cache.

Steam Train Young ones will be captivated by the sounds and smells of the Dartmouth


Steam Railway. Historic engines pull carriages along seven miles of track from Kingswear to Paignton most days throughout the year. For a truly transport-tastic day - extend the journey to the full ‘Round Robin’ (which also includes a boat trip and an open-top bus ride). In the winter, presents are handed out on Santa Special Trains and the famous Train of Lights takes to the rails at night. see page 41

Plymouth Aquarium A little further afield - an intriguing collection of ocean creatures can be


found at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth. This is the UK’s largest aquarium and will keep little ones occupied for hours with its octopuses, clown fish and sand tiger sharks. Look out for ‘Friday’ the gentle giant tur- tle who weighs in at 120kgs (that’s the same as four labradors!). www. national-aquari- um.co.uk

RNLI Visitor Centre The Dartmouth RNLI Visitor Centre (on the South Embankment near Rockfish)


might not look like a place for children from the outside, but inside there’s a full-size inflatable lifeboat to play on and a dress- ing-up wardrobe with RNLI kit to try on. There’s also some inspiring footage of real-life rescues and a photo screen al- lowing visitors to put themselves into an emergency scene.


Start Point Lighthouse Just beyond Torcross is the stunning Start Point peninsula. On it stands an imposing white lighthouse which, since 1836, has helped


ships avoid a disastrous encounter with the rocks. Tours (45 mins) take place at various times throughout the year. Adventurous children will love climbing the spiral staircase to the top (minimum height 1.1m).
