Situated between the rivers Plym and Tamar on the coast of Devon, the city of Plymouth has everything you could want from a British seaside holiday – the spectacular natural Harbour of Plymouth Sound, the majestic beaches of Whitesand and Bigbury Bays, Dartmoor National Park to the north, a wealth of heritage and cultural centres and some of the finest wining, dining and entertainment the UK has to offer.
Plymouth has long been a favourite with sailing and boating enthusiasts as the area has much to offer. Explore the stunning coastlines of Devon and Cornwall or venture inland along the lovely Rivers Yealm or Tamar and discover places of breathtaking natural beauty. To compliment Plymouth’s love affair with all things seafaring, there is the Barbican Maritime Village, a positively cosmopolitan area literally steeped in maritime history where the ghosts of Drake and Raleigh walk cobbled streets flanked with cafes, bars, restaurants, galleries and specialist craft shops.
The city centre is a thriving, bustling place with world-class shopping centre, traditional pubs, gourmet restaurants, fish bars, specialist markets and cafes. Visit the awesome Drake Circus centre with its forty-eight shops and restaurants or the ever-popular pannier market with one hundred plus stalls and famous farmers market. There are two excellent theatres – the Royal Theatre, with its programme of West End previews, and Plymouth Pavilions for variety shows, comedians and concerts. For those in search of nightlife there are the casinos, multiplex cinemas and countless bars and clubs that stay open well into the early hours.
So whatever it is you want from your holiday, relaxation, hospitality, excitement, entertainment or surprises Plymouth has everything and much more.
