Crealy in Exeter plus Woodlands at Dartmouth area would be perfect for the lads, check out the devon atttractions site

Paignton Zoo is really good, would recommend going there. Also would agree with the above post about Crealy and Woodlands.

Don't be tempted by the Living Coasts at Torquay though, not really worth it in my opinion.

If you go to Quaywest, there is also an outdoor go-carting track next to it which is great fun and pretty cheap. You can get a return trip on a steam train from Paignton station down to Dartmouth where you can spend the day, it's a really nice place to have a look around and have lunch by the water. Paignton is good in the evening with the pier and there are lots of arcades and I think (though probably only at certain times) a fairground.

I can't remember the dates, perhaps a little late now, but Teignmouth and Shaldon are worth a visit, Shaldon has an annual regatta on the beach where there are all sorts of competitions and games and processions/floats with the boats parading around the River. In Shaldon there is a really nice restaurant which sits on "the ness" which overlooks the sea and Teignmouth, there is also a pitch and putt golf course next to that which is always a good laugh.

Trago mills at Newton Abbot has a huge store that stocks just about everything at bargain prices and also has a leisure park for the kids with go-carts, boats, railway etc.

Kents cavern is very good and worth a look too.

Thanks for all the advice, we'll definatly give them a go!
Checked out Kents Cavern and they are doing a ghost tour with dinner sounds good! Thanks Broxy!
I'm sure I might be able to squeeze some shopping in too. at least the kids will be occupied.
Also cheers Jimmy W the steam train sound great........ just got to pray for some good weather.
It's the 1st year we havn't gone abroad, just hope the kids enjoy it as much!
