Grab your sunscreen and escape with your classmates for summer activities on the beach, from surfing frothy waves to building sandcastles whilst cooling down with ice cream.

Summer is a good season for having a lot of outdoor activities and don’t miss the chance to explore the city around you. Let’s us bring you through the activities that you might miss out or out of your summer to-do-list.

Dive into an underwater world

Head to the National Marine Aquarium for a wander through the world’s oceans. The largest aquarium in the UK and home to over 4,000 Ocean animals, it is easily accessible by public transport. They also offer student discount too, making it even better!

Go for a dip

On the waterfront, you’ll find the stunning Tinside Lido – Plymouth’s art deco outdoor swimming pool. Regularly topping the list of Europe’s best outdoor pools, this is an unmissable attraction. Open during the summer months, this outdoor salt-water swimming pool offers a beautiful surround in which to swim, sunbathe and watch the world go by.

Experience incredible events

The British Firework Championships were started in 1997 by The Event Services Association (TESA), a trade body representing the outdoor events industry in the UK. The displays are best viewed from Plymouth Hoe – and best of all, it’s totally free to attend.

Each year six professional display companies are selected by draw to take part – three on each evening of the event -and every sixth year there is a Champions event when winners from the previous five years (plus the previous Champion-of-Champions winner) return to battle it out for the overall title Champion-of-Champions.

Take to the water

Make the most of being in Britain’s Ocean City by getting out on the water. There’s a huge range of activities you can enjoy at the Mount Batten Watersports and Activities Centre. From sailing to stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking to multi adventure days, to simply enjoying breakfast, coffee, cakes or lunch in The Lookout, there’s something for everyone at the Mount Batten Centre.

Pack a picnic

Head to the Elizabethan Gardens to enjoy quiet, shady seclusion on the Barbican on a hot summer’s day, or take a trip to Plymouth Hoe to enjoy the amazing panorama over the Sound while you tuck into lunch – don’t forget to treat yourself to an ice cream afterwards!
