Plymouth is a historic seafaring port, and is therefore rich with maritime heritage. The modern Plymouth also has vibrant city centre, making this a great town to take a cottage holiday near. Take a walk through the Barbican with the associations with both Drake and Raleigh, and discover the Mayflower steps, which is where the pilgrim fathers departed our great shores, on their way to America.
The narrow streets and alleyways which make up the Barbican are the home to art galleries, museums and local independent speciality shops. Take a stroll along the magnificent promenade, and take a swim in the Tinside Lido. This lovingly restored Art Deco lido is separated from the sea only by a wall. For summer visitors, take a tour around the 17th century battlements of the Royal Citadel fortress.
If you're looking to indulge yourself in some of the locally produced fare, you'll like the farmers markets which take place in the second and forth Saturday of every month.
For the water lovers out there, you find canoeing, fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing. Whether you're looking for a holiday to discover the ancient heritage on one of England's old towns, or just want to swim and ski for a few days - a break in Plymouth could be the place for you.
