“Water taxi across to Plymouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Why travel by car when you can travel by boat. The parking in Plymouth is very costly so park for free at mount Batten and sail across. Fantastic :>)

“Not open enough.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Plymouth people aren't told much about this very prominent limestone drum shaped building on the small outcrop at Mountbatten overlooking Jennicliff Bay and the Cattewater. I always believed it to be another Restoration fortification offering a gun emplacement to protect Sutton Harbour and the mouth of the Plym, but who knows? Plymouth City Council who are thought to be the owners or long lessees only open the building to the public very infrequently and there seems to be little by way of specific online presence. I went ona tour about a couple of years ago. I have had to put August 2011 because Tripadvisor offer limited choices in the review template.
