Plymouth Mini Guide

Where is Plymouth?
Plymouth is the largest city in the south west of the UK, famous as both a historic and modern day naval port.  It is situated on the A38 and is served by both railway links  It is a cosmopolitan city, but on the edge of Dartmoor and close to the beaches of South Devon and Cornwall.


Why Would I Want to go There?
The historic city of Plymouth is packed full of things to do, there is a large modern city centre with all the High Street stores plus many more – almost all of the centre of the city was destroyed during World War II, so has since been completely re-built.

If shopping is your idea of a great time then you can do no better than Drake Circus shopping centre.  If not, there are plenty of other things to interest you such as the National Marine Aquarium and the cobbled streets around the Barbican area with their quaint shops, pubs and restaurants.  There is even a gin distillery, but make sure you've got a designated driver!

Plymouth's Maritime History
Both Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake made their voyages from Plymouth, in fact Sir Francis Drake played the most famous game of bowls on Plymouth Hoe in 1588 before setting out to take on the Spanish Armada.  The Hoe today is a large green oasis in the city with spectacular views over Plymouth Sound and the modern day naval dockyards. Plymouth is also the home port of HMS Ocean, one of the Royal Navy's largest ships along with several smaller vessels.

The Surrounding Area
Plymouth marks the eastern boundary of South Devon, just over the Tamar Bridge and you're in Cornwall, an easy drive from the small picturesque towns of Looe and Polperro.  To the north are Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor with their wild rugged landscapes – why not try a drive up to the Jamaica Inn in the middle of Bodmin Moor, made famous by the Daphne du Maurier novel of the same name – originally a haunt of smugglers, now a pub and hotel with a museum dedicated to the author.

To the west is Dartmouth with it's famous Royal Naval College, set on the banks of the River Dart, this pretty town is a must for all visitors to the area, as is a trip on the nearby Dart Valley Steam Railway, not forgetting of course, the obligatory Devon Cream Tea!

Latest Update from Plymouth:

22/04/13 - On the 13th and 14th of August the British Fireworks Championships return to the city. You'll see dramatic displays by the country's top pyrotechnics experts as they set off the fireworks from The Hoe.
