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

Living in Plymouth I really wouldn't advise anybody to visit it. The lower end of the city centre is devoid of any nice shops unless you like charity shops and fast food outlets and frequented by groups of Eastern European men who can seem quite intimidating at times. The main shopping centre, Drake Circus, really missed the boat when it... More

Lots of boat trips, good walking, and buses to get you around when hills become hard work! numerous cafes to suit evey taste, and excellent development going on at Royal William Yard bringing old buildings back to life.
