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...

I used to live in Plymouth due to my girlfriends family living there but must be honest with this review and admit plymouth is not the nicest of cities, whilst the hoe is quite enjoyable particulay on a rare summers day or evening, it can get taken over by rowdy gangs drinking and whilst unpleasent incidents are not common, they...

I'd convince my significant other that its the "Ocean City" and we should go for the day. After queuing and getting stuck in some disgusting 60's multistorey carpark by the market (apparently the sign that tells you there are space lies) we ventured into Plymouth via the market. First impression is that if you want your mobile phone unlocking, a... More

Plymouth is not a holiday destination, its goes wild when it gets a new amenity of some kind but its usually 10 years behind other cities. only time Plymouth comes alive is when something is going on for free like the fireworks competions.

It is a wonderful place to live so many places to visit from here. Fifteen minutes to Dartmoor depending on traffic, a little bit longer to the beaches but some of the best beaches in the country. A very good shopping mall in Drakes Circus.

Plymouth is a great city. Very vibrant with a fantastic shopping centre at Drake Circus. It also has a good market for produce and goods, as well as a plethora of independent shops at the lower end of the town. There are numerous restaurants, a great theatre,impressive Life Centre, with swimming and diving pools, gym etc and a welcoming atmosphere.

I have travelled to most cities in the UK and Plymouth is by far the best! Barbican seafront and harbour is beautiful, UK's version of San Diego. It's not Earth's most beautiful place by any means but its nowhere near as hideous as other cities, and the people here are slightly friendlier than the rest of the country. Shame about... More

The city is dying. It lots of empty shops in town and not very clean. Lots of charity collectors that pounce on you. Its no longer a vibrant energetic city like it use to be. It's such a shame. All the big companies and shops have left, crime is on the increase and the city centre well, is just boring.... More
