Welcome to Plymouth


Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City

Steeped in seafaring history Plymouth is a stunning city in a beautiful waterfront setting. Sandwiched between the rugged landscape of Dartmoor and the incredible South West coastline there is something for everyone.

Tinside Lido Pool

Set in a beautiful location overlooking the sea at the tip of Plymouth Hoe and voted one of the top 10 best outdoor pools in Europe, Tinside Lido is an attraction not to be missed. Built in 1935, Tinside is a slice of the quintessential British seaside from a bygone era. The Lido is a wonderful example of art-deco style and is Grade II listed. As well as the pool itself, the facility also features a sun deck, which is one of the best places in Plymouth to soak up the sun.

Explore Further Afield

Slightly further afield than Plymouth, is the national park of Dartmoor. Dartmoor has it all, you can ramble across the wilds of the park, go letterboxing or rock climbing, see the famous Dartmoor Ponies, visit places of interest such as Widdecombe in the Moor, Haytor or even Dartmoor Prison! It’s great granite Tors and heather covered moorland, deep wooded gorges, beautiful reservoirs and tumbling rocky rivers, Dartmoor National Park covers an area of 368 square miles, the largest, and wildest, area of open country in southern England.

The South Hams is an area of exceptional beauty and contrast with river estuaries, rolling hills and thatched cottages surrounding the lovely old towns of Dartmouth, Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Modbury and Ivybridge. The South Hams has some of the most beautiful, safe, clean and best managed beaches you’ll find anywhere.

Exeter is the regions capital and it’s not hard to see why. This university city offers everything from a thriving high street, to a stunning waterfront area along the river, to cultural diversity we defiantly recommend the underground passages of Exeter! Exeter shines with colourful character and offers a delightful mix of high quality attractions, restaurants and shops, in a setting of architectural splendour.

Cornwall is the gem of the the UK. You could easily make the mistake that stepping onto the sand on a beach in Cornwall is like stepping onto the sand in the Caribbean. Combined with the quaint fishing villages and small towns, it is a perfect day out. The unspoilt coast is ideal for a stroll, picnic and swim in the sea. With the warmest climate in the South, the sun will hopefully be shining warming up the bustling towns such as Newquay, Falmouth or St Ives.
