Areas to Visit
Whether it’s eating freshly caught seafood in one of the waterfront restaurants on the Barbican, relaxing in the sunshine with a picnic on the Hoe or taking a behind the scenes tour of Devonport Dockyard, each area of Plymouth has something special and unique to offer visitors.
To see why we’re so proud of our waterfront and discover Plymouth’s marine heritage, take a trip to Sutton Harbour and the Barbican, Royal William Yard or Mount Batten – all of which can be reached by ferries and water taxis as well as by bus and on foot.
The surrounding areas of Plymouth have plenty to offer too – take the Cremyll foot ferry from Stonehouse to tour the beautiful Mount Edcumbe House and Gardens or travel further inland for the remote beauty of Dartmoor or cycle through the National Trust woodland of the Plym Valley.
If you have time to venture further afield, Devon and Cornwall are full of family-friendly visitor attractions and places of interest including the world-famous Eden Project in Cornwall and English Riviera in South Devon.
With so many places to visit and things to do, even regular visitors to Plymouth will be able to discover something new!
