The Port of Plymouth

The Port of Plymouth is known as ‘Britain’s Ocean City,’ for its rich maritime history. If you are a big fan of everything nautical, Plymouth is for you. Places to visit include Plymouth Hoe, Smeaton’s Tower, Sir Francis Drakes ‘Game of Bowls Statue,’ Sutton Harbour which is the home of the National Marine Aquarium and the world-famous Plymouth Gin Distillery, the Barbican which burst an array of specialist shops, restaurants & cafes and the Royal William Yard.

There is always a lot going on in Plymouth so clear the diary! The city is a host for many events such as the British Art Show, America’s Cup World Series, The Armed Forces Day National Event, Barbican Jazz & Blues Festival, the British Fireworks Championships and the Marine City Festival.

If you fancy a little retail theory, Plymouth also ticks this box, it has the largest shopping-center outside of Bristol, "Drakes Circus."
