Dartmoor has the capacity to offer something for everyone, regardless of your hobby, interest or passion.
From simple circular walks, which can include a picnic spot, to a more extreme activity like Bear Grylls there will be an activity or attraction that will bring you pleasure, enlightenment or excitement.
For the children try one of the family friendly attractions, take a trip on a steam train at the South Devon Railway, or book them onto a gorge scrambling course with Adventure Okehampton.
Outdoor fun can be had all through the year with South West Lakes Trust or Dartmoor National Park Ranger Ralph Club. Remember to look at the Visit Dartmoor events calendar page for dozens of ideas and inspiration
Indulge your inner horticulturalist at one of the many fabulous open gardens, lose yourself in a stunning abbey or a castle, spend an afternoon exploring an ancient stannary town like Tavistock, take a wander amongst ancient ruins, step back in time at a museum, take in some heritage or feel inspired in one of the super galleries.
Whatever else you do, don't forget to visit one of the award winning Dartmoor National Park Visitor Centres at Princetown, Postbridge and Haytor.
