Plymouth is a God-awful place. If you should end up there by some dreadful accident, go to the Aquarium, it's about the only worthwhile thing in this Third World dump.

My daughter has just graduated from Plymouth university and we have visited many times. She has thoroughly enjoyed her time at the uni and passed a psychology degree. When visiting we have found the city centre to be clean and pleasant with a good vibe. We have eaten out a lot and been out for drinks never seeing any mother.... More

I cannot say much more because I am in a wheelchair it is not very friendly at all, old cobbled streets lack of access to things, a lot of the pavements are in a very poor state, plenty of places to eat out, pretty expensive though. Not much to do for a tourist I think we would have been better... More

Like most cities Plymouth has good areas and areas where the deprivation is clear. Efforts are being made to regenerate areas and a good example this is the Royal William Yard which has been transformed over the last few years with smart apartments and a good selection of restaurants. The same is starting to happen in the Millbay area. The... More

Not what one would expect in this tired city. The old is being forgotten and slowly being run down and not well maintained. The new is expensive so for all things in Plymouth be prepared to dig deep in your pockets to pay for everything, including food. Be well prepared to walk, not one sightseeing excursion in the city even... More

Well worth a visit! Lots to do and see. the Hoe, the Barbican and Royal William Year offer lots of great eating and drinking spots with tons of photo opportunities. Don't miss out of the boat trip from Durnford Street going to Mount Edgecombe or you can go in the car across on the Torpoint Ferry from Devonport and drive... More

I went to Plymouth on Fri 13th - Mon 16th and didn't want to leave! There were so many things to do and places to visit but I ran out of time. I went in a few of the shopping centres and markets, Drakes Circus being the main one. The Primark store is absolutely HUGE and on the Saturday is... More

If you take the time to explore you will find some real gems. There are stunning views at Plymouth Hoe, excellent restaurants in the Royal William Boatyard , an interesting tour of the Plymouth Gin factory ( with some rather delicious samples ) just to name a few, like any other city it has it's less attractive places but boring...
