Rain or shine, Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City is home to breath-taking views, plenty to see and do and lots of fresh, sea air. Explore the waterfront, shop ‘til you drop' or experience world-class events.

Plymouth is a port city in Devon, southwest England. It’s known for its maritime heritage and historic Barbican district with narrow, cobbled streets. Sutton Harbour is home to the National Marine Aquarium, where sharks and rays glide in a deep tank. Also in the harbour are several marinas and a fish market, the Plymouth Fisheries. The Mayflower Steps are where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World in 1620 .

Plymouth is the perfect place to explore the breath-taking beauty of the south west. With the rugged expanse of Dartmoor National Park to the north, the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and Cornwall, with all its charms, just a short trip west, there’s endless natural beauty to discover.

Whether it’s eating freshly caught seafood in one of the waterfront restaurants on the Barbican, relaxing in the sunshine with a picnic on the Hoe or taking a behind the scenes tour of Devonport Dockyard, each area of Plymouth has something special and unique to offer.
