A "dirty" city i'll garuntee you after a full day of shopping take a bath the "city smog" will make u dirty, to go from 1 supermarket to another is far too long, the main shops will take a while to go through u need a 3 day shop at least.

The harbour, the Aquarium and the plaque showing the place where the Pilgrim Father left for the New World (America) are all within a few hundred yards of each other. There are many fine places to eat and drink in Plymouth and if you have time you can also visit the Gin Factory (Distillery) just a short distance down the... More

From Royal William Yard in Plymouth, you can catch a ferry to "the Barbican" every 30 mins, Edgecombe House (and Segway) every 30 mins and there are so many things to see and do as it is strategically placed in Devon that any where in Cornwall is also an easy day day trip...go to Padstowe or Penzance in 90 mins...

Would be nice if they looked after the roads....parking is very expensive. If you are going to visit don't take a car

Its important to know that bombing took the heart out of this place so apart from around the docks it's all been rebuilt and is like any other modern place. I started at the hoe with statue of Raleigh looking out over the sound. Keep going left and you come to where the pilgrim fathers set sail.around here are the... More

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
