Plymouth UK

Packed with maritime history and waterfront vistas, Plymouth is a key port city in South West England bordered by a scenic natural harbour – Plymouth Sound. From being a trading post for the Roman Empire to growing into a commercial shipping port during the Industrial Revolution, the city’s identity is rooted in seafaring. A visit to Mayflower Museum will give you insights into some chapters of Plymouth’s nautical past.

Water-centric backdrops never really leave your sight when travelling in Plymouth. To take in the commanding views of the sea, walk around Plymouth Hoe – a sprawling public park dotted with historical monuments. You can easily spot the red-and-white-striped Smeaton’s Tower peeking above the grassy landscape of the park. If you fancy a refreshing swim during summer months, head to Tinside Lido, an art deco-style outdoor swimming pool overlooking the sea. The city is also speckled with over a hundred churches, of which the Cathedral Church of St Mary and St Boniface is a prominent landmark that you can visit.

Known as ‘Britain’s Ocean City’, Plymouth is characterised by its fresh sea breeze and proximity to the countryside. For a high-octane outdoor adventure, sign up for kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding at the Mount Batten Centre. You can also set out on a sightseeing cruise along the coastline at sunset or sail to quaint fishing villages of Calstock, Cawsand and more.
