Cycle Plymouth's Waterfront

About us

Plymouth’s waterfront boasts some fantastic sights as you cycle from Sutton Harbour and the Barbican along the easy route to Plymouth Hoe then onto Millbay and Stonehouse before arriving at the Royal William Yard – a former Grade 1 Royal Naval yard.

As you start this ride you will leave the Barbican and cycle along the waterfront to Plymouth’s Hoe. Here you will see the iconic Smeaton’s Tower as well as excellent views across Plymouth Sound where you will see the Tinside lido as well as views of Mountbatten, Drake’s Island and the Mount Edgcumbe Estate in Cornwall.

Cycling along this route through Millbay and Stonehouse you will visit the Royal William Yard – a former Grade 1 Royal Naval building rejuvenated with high quality cafes and restaurants. At either end, you can hire a bike and top up with an Espresso or smoothie at the Rockets & Rascals bicycle emporium and café.
