Known as Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth is a historic port located on the south-west edge of the county of Devon. The city’s nautical heritage is unparalleled: this is the port the Mayflower departed from in 1620, taking the first Pilgrims across the Atlantic to what would become the United States of America, and it’s also where Sir Francis Drake set sail from when he circumnavigated the Earth in 1577. So it’s unsurprising that this city’s focus is its beautiful coastline, and its many attractions make it a fascinating place to visit. There are plenty of Plymouth hotels available, but if you’re looking for comfort and convenience at the heart of Plymouth city centre, look no further than Jurys Inn Plymouth.
Get your bearings
With Dartmoor National Park to the north and the English Riviera coast to the east, few settings are more picturesque than Plymouth’s. But this is also a vibrant modern city, with excellent arts, shopping and entertainment offerings. Drake Circus is a buzzing shopping centre with big-name brands, and be sure to visit the West End, which is home to a range of independent stores and Plymouth Market, a grade II-listed building that houses more than 100 stalls and eateries.
Plymouth Hoe is a charming green space close to the city centre that overlooks Plymouth Sound, and offers some of the city’s most spectacular seascapes. It’s where you’ll find the candy-striped Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse, standing at 21 metres high and offering amazing views from its lantern room. The Hoe is also home to the Tinside Lido, a beautiful art deco pool overlooking the sea, which was built in 1935 and opens for bathing during the summer months.
While you’re there
The Barbican and Sutton Harbour are some of Plymouth’s most popular areas, and for good reason. Home to the National Marine Aquarium – the UK’s largest, with more than 4,000 creatures including sharks and stingrays – this part of the city is also where you’ll find a huge range of pubs and restaurants of all different cuisines. Along the Barbican’s historic cobbled streets, you’ll also come to the Plymouth Gin Distillery, producer of one of the world’s best-loved tipples since 1793, where you can take a tour and discover the history behind the city’s famous export.
