Great City....but it needs the Airport to reopen

Lovely place to visit, would be even better if you could travel there easily. The Airport is still there (and easily fully functional) despite the leaseholder trying to keep it... read more

100% on this city. So much to see in such beautiful surroundings. Involve yourself in this city's history by visiting the Royal Dockyard, the Royal William Yard, Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican. Try one of the many restaurants and bars and then just relax to watch the ships and boats on Plymouth Sound. Recommended to everyone.

To me, Plymouth has everything - small individual shops in the Barbican, large shopping areas in the centre, the Pannier Market with its useful stalls selling just about everything, loads and and loads of eating places to choose from - The Hoe with fantastic views out over the Sound, theatres etc. etc. as well as only being a short distance...

I think Plymouth looks best, illuminated at night, from the bay. We happened to be there on one of the fireworks competition evenings and followed a line of cars, whose drivers obviously knew where they were going, up to Staddon Heights. On arrival, we were greeted by a large number of marshals who guided us to a car park on... More

We drove up from St Austell where we were staying on holiday and boy was it worth it. Firework manufacturers are given ten minutes each to unleash their biggest and best. The setting is the "Sound" a natural harbour with loads of space for spectators to ohh an ahh. We watched three stonking displays in the space of an hour... More

Love Plymouth. Plenty of not so goods but some great it's too. Love the Hoe, Barbican and all the harbour area plus some great seaside places - Wembury, Bigbury - around the outside.

A city my wife and I regularly visit. Famous for the harbour where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for America. Famous for many other attractions and events too; and one such event that occurred this week was the National Firework Championship competition. Six companies compete over 2 evenings, and the winners are always the viewing public, and I attach some... More

Plymouth used to be brilliant for shopping 10 years ago. Now, not good at all. Don't even bother going to the bottom of town. The only thing there is the market and fast food shops. It's just not worth the walk. The top of town is better as you have drake circus. However even that is lacking, but they have... More

Lived here for many years. Loved it. Old part is The Barbican, well worth a visit. Modern town centre. Big Theatre. Central for visiting East, West, and Dartmoor to the north.
