Did you know...Sir Francis Drake was once Mayor of Plymouth?

Those who choose to visit Plymouth are in for a treat. Overlooking its famous harbour, the striking city of Plymouth is entwined with Britain’s maritime past – and continues to play a vast role in its nautical world today. From nostalgic Barbican, to the modern Drake’s Circus shopping centre and the sweeping views from the Hoe – a day spent in Plymouth combines the best of all worlds.

A break in Plymouth is sure to be diverse, why not walk the footsteps of Captain Cook and Sir Francis Drake with a stroll around the Tudor buildings and medieval streets of Barbican, before visiting the restored Elizabethan gardens for a feel of the Plymouth of days gone by? Just a short walk away, Plymouth Hoe is a popular place to relax and take in the views – and it even has its own lighthouse for an even higher vantage point.

Plymouth’s naval base - HMNB Devonport – is well worth a visit on one of their Navy Days, and visitors can take the opportunity to climb onboard the naval ships and watch captivating displays. Aside from a colourful history and the advantages of a modern university city, Plymouth boasts picturesque coastlines and surrounding countryside that can only be Devon.
