Plymouth town guide
The administrative capital of Devon, Plymouth offers a rich combination of heritage and nature in a thriving city environment.
Explore Plymouth Hoe - here Francis Drake played bowls as the Spanish Armada approached. Take the time to view the old Eddystone Lighthouse, or see local history in the Plymouth Dome where you can take a journey through time.
Take a walk along the Waterfront where you can explore Plymouth's superb natural harbour, or continue further afield along the South West Coast Path.
With a hire car available to explore further afield, Bodmin Moor can be reached
A number of local railways offer the chance to experience beautiful countryside in comfort. Dartmoor is accessible by hire car, as is the Eden Project or various stately homes and gardens - Buckland Abbey or Cotehele Gardens.
A boat trip around the harbour is a must and if you are lucky enough to be in Plymouth for a Navy Day at HM Naval Base, Davenport, you are in for a treat.
