Plymouth Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
Terry EmeryFrom Francis Drake, Raleigh, and the Pilgrim Fathers onwards, Plymouth has had salt-water in its veins. Still a naval town to its core, the city on the banks of the Tamar is proud of its history and takes pains to show it off. A comprehensive Mayflower exhibition, the Barbican historic harbour area, you can even still emulate Drake’s bowls playing on the Hoe which is is a natural park with wonderful views of sea and city. The ocean link is underlined with the UK’s largest and well-stocked aquarium … and yes, there’s still a distillery for the original ‘Plymouth Gin’.
