If you’re looking for things to do in Devon, put House of Marbles at the top of your list!

One of my favourite places to visit in Devon is House of Marbles. I’m not going to lie, I love a freebie and House of Marbles is free to visit and has free parking! Plus, there’s so much to do, you and the family could spend hours here

Read on to find out what’s on offer at House of Marbles in Devon


a family friendly attraction in Devon

There’s so much to see you won’t know where to start! Make sure you don’t miss the museum section, which not only explains the 4000 year history of glass (made very interesting, I promise) but also has a huge collection of toys and games from yesteryear; some that you may remember from your childhood and others dating back as far as 1600!

There’s also a huge number of captivating marble runs, including ‘Snooki 2000’ a massive construction which is located on the first floor and had me absolutely spellbound. Oh, and don’t miss the Glass Making section, where you can see the masters at work, creating the most wonderful marbles and gifts. Speaking of gifts, this place has so much on offer and reasonably priced too! Lots of choice for children and adults alike, I managed to pick up lots of gifts for family and friends (and myself of course!)


So, if you’re looking for weather–proof low-cost family fun, this is the place to go. They even have a café, offering drinks, snacks and meals (A pot of tea for 1 is £1.80 – not bad at all)
