  • Very romantic setting for a wedding with lots of little coves etc. Great staff and loads of views.
  • Stunning place. The perfect wedding location.
  • Great place to visit,would be nice if they had more to see and do
  • Great wedding location, excellent food, and always units available for local businesses.
  • Historic Crownhill Fort is a "Palmerston Fort" and was built to protect Plymouth from attacks from the French in Victorian times. Well worth a visit and a walk around the exterior is historically wonderful with a lot of battlements and open space. Tranquil and beautiful setting. Be aware that the Fort may be closed and this can be frustrating for casual visitors. A walk around the outside would possibly make up for a wasted journey. David

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.
