I'm going to be staying a week in Plymouth with my partner and 1 year old, could anyone suggest some nice things to do?

Definitely take the ferry to Mount Edgecumbe, you can do this from the Barbican, Cremyll or the Royal William yard. RWY is also a nice place to stroll around, grab a coffee and a bagel from the Hutong cafe.
Avoid Plymouth city centre, although the Mall is ok for essential shops such as Boots & M&S.
The Box museum is interesting.
Plymouth Life Centre has a nice toddler pool and a good play park within Central Park.

If you have a car the steam train, bitterly house and otter sanctuary makes a wonderful day out too.

Train to Looe or Calstock.

Another vote for Cremyll foot ferry to Mount Edgecumbe. Meal at Royal William YArd on your return.

The city museum The Box is very good. It's free but I think you need to pre-book. Very nice cafe.

Stroll around the Barbican and have a burger from Cap'n Jaspers if the weather is nice.

If you go to the aquarium Rockfish fish restaurant next to it is very nice.
