Britain's Ocean City
Plymouth is a city with a proud naval history, famed as the port where the Pilgrims set off to America on the Mayflower in 1620. These days the city retains a vibrant waterfront, packed full of attractions of its own.
Outdoor swimming pool Tinside Lido, the Plymouth Marine Aquarium, the iconic Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse, Mayflower Steps and Royal William Yard are all a great draw for tourists.
The pubs and restaurants on the historic Barbican waterfront provide exciting nightlife, while for shoppers, Drake’s Circus Shopping Centre and the Barcode Leisure Complex mean you’ll never run out of things to do.
