Easter Holidays 2024: Things To Do In Plymouth

There are plenty of things to do in Plymouth for the Easter Holidays 2024. With Good Friday just around the corner, what can we expect to see and do?

As always, there are plenty of events, exceptional day-out ideas and fabulous food and drink. Sutton Harbour and the Barbican will have lots of family-friendly things to do in this unique part of Plymouth. You’ll have plenty of ways to fill up the days while school is out for two weeks.


Easter Weekend

If you’re looking for things to do in Plymouth this Easter weekend, why not start with an Easter egg hunt?

The ‘EGGStraordinary Barbican Easter Trail’ is back for another year, from the 29th March until the 14th April. This free trail will just require you to collect a trail sheet from the Tourist Information Centre and Mayflower Museum on the Barbican. Discover which creatures have been hatching eggs along the trail. Spot the odd one out for an extra Easter treat.

Over at Saltram House, there’s another Easter adventure trail to get stuck into. From the 23rd March until the 14th April, hop around the garden to find 10 activities, then head to Egg HQ for your prize.

The fun doesn’t stop on Easter Monday, Plymouth Boat Trips are hosting a kids’ Nauticool Disco. From 1pm-2:30pm, sail across the Sound with free face painting, a nautical fancy dress competition, music, and lots of fun. Tickets are currently half-price, so get them before they’re gone!

If you’re still looking for more things to do in Plymouth this Easter, why not head to the Theatre Royal? Two great, family-friendly shows will be stopping by for the Easter Holidays 2024. From the 26th March until the 30th March, catch The Wizard of Oz. From the 26th March until the 14th April, you can also see the Three Little Pigs.


Half Term Events

If you’re all egged out and looking to let off some steam, The Box is hosting a family silent disco. On the 5th April, from 5:30pm-8:00pm, strut your stuff under the Naval figureheads. Fancy dress is also encouraged to fit the theme of ‘Under the Sea’! This event is perfect for families with children aged 6 to 16.

There are always a number of exciting events going on at the National Marine Aquarium. Whenever you’re nearby, be sure to check the Events section of their website to see what’s on. On the 13th April, they’re hosting another of their very popular Sleeping with Sharks event. Bring the family and have a sleepover in front of the exhibits surrounded by underwater inhabitants. It’s also a chance to learn more about the importance of ocean conservation and preserving our marine environment.

While you’re at Sutton Harbour and the neighbouring Barbican, why not stop by Southside Street? This picturesque strip is home to some of the area’s most unique, independent retailers selling gifts, treats and souvenirs. You can also find a whole host of art galleries to browse and enjoy. Stop for a sweet treat at the Flapjackery or, if it’s warm enough, grab an ice cream from Pilgrim’s Ice Cream which sits just around the corner.


Things to Eat

After you’ve checked out some of the things to do in Plymouth this Easter, why not grab a bite? Enjoy all of the spring menus that Sutton Harbour has to offer with a choice of various eateries.

It wouldn’t be a day out in Plymouth without fish and chips. Rockfish have just announced their new opening hours for spring and summer. Now you can dine with them every day between 12pm to 9pm. Sit outside and look out over the ocean, or enjoy the restaurant, with games and puzzles to keep kids occupied.

The Harbour also offers dine-in or takeaway fish and chips with options for vegans and vegetarians too. You can also expect classic burgers, tacos and more. Just across the road, you’ll find The Greek serving authentic Grecian street food, drinks, and ice creams. The Stable sits just across Sutton Harbour serving sourdough pizza with plenty of toppings to choose from.

Looking for a place to eat that everybody will be happy with? Look no further than Cap’n Jaspers, Boston Tea Party and the Armado Lounge.

Open from 7:30am until midnight, Cap’n Jaspers has been serving up food in the Barbican since 1978. They offer an array of different burgers and light bites from the classic cheeseburger to cheese and pineapple!

Boston Tea Party’s menu also covers the classics and is split into breakfasts, brunch, burgers and more. Grab a coffee, a smoothie, or something with a bit more kick.

The Armado Lounge arrived at the Barbican last year and is already proving a hit with harbour visitors and diners. Offering all-day food menus, including gluten-free, vegan and kids, you’re sure to leave with full stomachs and happy faces. Choose from brunch, sandwiches, tapas and more as you take in the views.
