“Pleasant evening walking in Plymouth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Enjoyed walking through the city, and down to the Barbican, seeing fascinating historical buildings and locations. Good selection of places to eat. I enjoyed a very nice meal in a Himalayan restaurant in and Elizabethan House!

“The Worst of Post War Planning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Plymouth was the most heavily bombed southern port in WW2 and was reconstructed in the 1950's with none of the charm of European construction. Sadly it's buildings in the city centre are charmless relics of a bygone age. That is not to say here aren't some gems left; The Hoe and the Barbican for example, however they are let down by the rest. Good points are the costal views and the bits Goring forgot. Sadly the town centre is as depressing as Coventry's, although that is being redeveloped and nowhere near as good as Liverpool's both of which were also heavily bombed.

“i try to avoid the place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Plymouth holds no special interest for me, afraid it feels like another big unfriendly city, with not much beauty to see. i sometimes have to drive through to get to cornwall, i dread the thought
