Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, is one of Europe’s most vibrant waterfront cities, with so much to explore. There’s something for every traveller to experience in this historic city, however long you have to stay.
Visit the Barbican and Sutton Harbour for quaint cobbled streets, a picturesque harbour and wealth of independent shops and restaurants. History fans should stop by the Mayflower Steps.
Learn all about the departure of the Pilgrims on the Mayflower ship, who sailed from the UK to the US in 1620 in search of religious freedom.
A short walk from this historic heart of the city is Plymouth Hoe – to describe it as a park doesn’t do it justice.
The Hoe is home to the striking red-and-white striped former lighthouse, Smeaton’s Tower, the art-deco, openair swimming pool Tinside Lido.
