Plymouth is a bustling, waterside city with a rich maritime history. Located on the Devon coast, the city is packed with attractions and offers shopping, night life and entertainment. With historic sites, famous landmarks and activities for all the family, you will find something to do whatever the weather.
Plymouth Hoe is the city''s crowning glory. Offering breath taking views across Plymouth Sound, the Hoe is one of the most stunning natural harbours in the world. Standing proud on the Hoe is Smeaton''s Tower Lighthouse, which is open year round. Look down to the shoreline to see the one of Plymouth''s most iconic landmarks, the art deco Tinside Lido, the perfect place to take the kids swimming in summer. Also located on the Hoe is the Royal Citadel, a 17th century fortress.
On the eastern side of the Hoe lies the Barbican, one of the city''s most historic spots. Its cobbled streets are lined with quirky shops, cafes and waterside restaurants, where you can sample freshly caught seafood. Places of interest include the National Marine Aquarium and the Plymouth Gin Distillery.
The City Centre has been pedestrianised and there are museums, art galleries and an extensive range of shops to discover, including one of the largest shopping centres in the south west. If it is entertainment you are seeking, then the nationally acclaimed Theatre Royal shows some of the UK''s leading productions, while the Pavilions is a leisure and entertainment complex with live shows and an ice rink.
