Welcome to Plymouth
Plymouth combines a modern vibrant city with a historic maritime heritage – a place that’s got culture, sport, leisure and entertainment high on the agenda. It is renowned for its magnificent waterfront, particularly Plymouth Sound and the Hoe, one of the most historic deep-water harbours in the UK and a real focal point in the city.
Plymouth is the perfect base for visiting the many must-see attractions of the South West of England. From the award winning Eden Project, quaint fishing villages, picturesque coastline of Devon and Cornwall, and the superb surfing beaches of North Cornwall, to the stunning natural beauty of the Dartmoor National Park and the famous Dorset Jurassic Coast, all are within easy reach of Plymouth.
Spend time with family and friends, relax and unwind in great restaurants or bars that make the most of local produce, breathe in the fresh air of Dartmoor, or bask in the fabulous beaches of the South West.
With a wide range of cultural and leisure activities taking place during the summer, there is always something to do in and around Plymouth. The Plymouth Summer Festival includes the world famous pyrotechnic display – the annual British Firework Championships, which takes place in August on Plymouth Hoe.For further information on events in and around Plymouth visit:
