Find adventure in Tiverton
Looking for ways to entertain the kids in the final week of the summer holidays? Send them off to spend a few hours at Tiverton Adventure Playground (open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during August for 8-13 year olds) to enjoy some good old fashioned outdoor play. While you wait take a stroll along the old route of the Tiverton and North Devon railway making your way to People’s Park via Park Road and enjoy some peace and quiet in the spacious park overlooking the town.
Alternatively, enjoy some retail therapy in Tiverton’s independent boutiques and gift shops; handmade pottery made on site at Bee Pottery, unique footwear at Raffy & Me, quirky gifts in Jo Amor and solutions for sustainable living at zero waste shop The House of Green among many others!
There are plenty of options for lunch including tasty pasties from Number 33 or the Crusty Cob bakeries on Fore Street, delicious homemade tarts and pastries from Reaper’s Healthfoods on Bampton Street and fresh local produce from Tiverton Pannier Market. Collect the kids and head to Amory Park to enjoy your picnic.
After lunch follow the River Lowman under the bridge and enjoy a 1 mile (approx) riverside walk with plenty of spots for paddling! Or, if you’ve brought the bikes along, take advantage of Tiverton’s BMX track and practise some tricks.
Head back to the centre of town to explore the toys in Tiverton’s family run, independent department store Banbury’s, hunt for their next favourite read in the children’s section of Liznojan Books and grab an afternoon cuppa and a slice of delicious homemade cake at Elsie May’s cafe.
Shop safe by wearing a mask and following social distancing measures in place throughout Tiverton.
