Spirit of Discovery

Once an important departure point for immigrants sailing for the New World, Plymouth is now mostly known for being one of the world’s most impressive natural harbors. This modern city is a popular launchpad to other notable nearby areas, including the beaches and footpaths of Cornwall’s scenic coastline. Long dismissed as an ugly urban center abounding in architectural eyesores, the city has been undergoing a massive regeneration comparable to the post-war reconstruction. Though there may be traffic problems and construction during your visit, you can always walk or cycle in and around the compact town center and the nearby waterfront. Plymouth is in Devon. Find what you're looking for from your Plymouth holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy United Kingdom trip planner.

Where to stay in Plymouth

Lodging in Plymouth range from stylish brand names and cozy B&Bs, to affordable self-catering apartments and private inns. To be near the city's main attractions, stay near the waterfront. Farther inland, you can explore a world of less expensive but just as comfortable boutique hotels and hostels, all within walking distance of the city's finest shops, restaurants, and bars. For an even less expensive alternative, consider staying in the quiet suburbs. Though a bit far from the city center, suburban hotels offer top-quality rooms at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
