Live 15 miles away. Plymouth was flattened by the Luftwaffe in WW2 and as a result it was rebuilt quickly and cheaply with a hideous result. Concrete box housing and shops are very depressing.The seashore bit is pretty if you get off on that café society stuff but I don't and the rest of it is dreary with empty shops, beggars and litter etc. You could always try a night out, there's a fine selection of prostitutes and ex-Marines looking for fights. There is a new shopping centre which bears the controversial name of Drake. This excuse for a man made a fortune in slavery and piracy and managed to sink 0 ships of the Armada. Many of us don't go there because of his name, The football team has never been so bad. Am I selling it to you ?
