A bit of a misnomer as Plymouth is not officially on the Atlantic ocean. However, it has a close association with the sea, being the home of Sir Francis Drake and one of the main ports of the Royal Navy. It was from Plymouth that the Pilgrim Fathers left England for a new life in America. There is plenty to... More

We recently visited for a long weekend golfing, we ventured into Plymouth for a night around the Barbican and found it to be very dated... Worth a visit but no trendy bars..

A lovely city with very good shops and a lovely seafront. You can sit and watch the ships going past from the Hoe and the Barbican is a fascinating place with its cobbled streets.its all within walking distance too.

Went to visit my daughter who now lives there. Previously she lived in Portsmouth, which I found to have far more character and to be much frendlier. In Plymouth, the car was king, and drivers were in a hurry and on a short fuse. The best part of my visit was a trip on the Cremyll Ferry to Mount Edgcumbe... More

Plymouth is a pleasant coastal city with something for everyone. It has a nicely laid out city centre with a huge variety of shops. It has lots of history, including an excellent museum, the Mayflower Steps (where the first American settlers sailed from), Elizabethan house, a range of country houses and parks within a few minutes drive. There is a... More

This was my first visit to Plymouth and was a 2 day business trip so didn't get too much chance to take in everything. Arrived and left by train. The general feeling I got was a nice friendly feeling on a city on the way up. A long way to go but this place haze plenty to offer

Thinking of visiting Plymouth? Then ask yourself this - how can the biggest city in the south west not have 1 five star hotel? This should start your alarm bells ringing long before you join the A38 and compete in the Janner version of the "Cannon Ball Run" Plymouth could be a cracking city, but successive city councils, local politicians...

Over the last couple of years there has been a strange falling off in the selection and quality of traders renting this seasonal wooden huts and stalls along Armada Way. This year the fairground rides have been moved more towards the guildhall and they look more lively but the lovely old carousel with the wooden horses, the candy striped tent... More

I used this agency to book accommodation for myself and a friend for the fireworks championships. The flat booked was listed at £350 per week. I booked and paid £150 which for some odd reason went through Paypal soundlets. before we travelled the agency phoned and said that there was a problem with the boiler and would we mind transferring...
