More Brits should visit Plymouth so experience the wonder and beauty of this hidden away city. The Sound is gorgeous - do a boat trip, walk the coastal path and visit Mt Edgecombe.

Lovely location (but then I live nearby) - Even in bad weather it has everything, plus Rain, but we've not had a lot of that recently :-) Views are outstanding!

Love the Hoe, liked the classic cars up there recently, started swimming in the Lido this year. Great view. Good for an ice cream or coffee, nice atmosphere. Went here once on Boxing Day, it was very quiet and watched a few people over 70 walking down to the water for a swim. Brilliant!

I took a boat trip which showed how massive the Sound is, and how attractive the views are. It was very interesting to see the dockyard with warships and submarines.

In the UK, we are blessed with easy access to the coast from most parts of the country.
