  • nice cultural place with a lot of history and much much more. which is an amazin thing for children. 
  • This is not a destination by any measure, but interesting for about 30 minutes if your include the ice cream or coffee stop. The outer defences are impressive, and you can imagine the days when it was...  more »
  • It is closed to the public at the moment but think that this is because it is winter. We went there as the royal british legion is based there and we wanted a poppy wreath. A lovely big parade ground ...  more »

  • Great wedding location, excellent food, and always units available for local businesses.
  • Great place to visit,would be nice if they had more to see and do
  • 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
  • Great afternoon out
  • Classic example of how awful planning is in England, especially plymouth. This should be packed full of visitors yet it is hidden inside an awful housing estate that backs onto it on several sides and on others is an industrial estate then commercial premises and a dual carriageway. What could have been an asset has Ben hidden forever behind pure dross. A damning indictment of planning not seeing the wider picture. Yes the national trust should take this over as it is closed most of the time, so not surprised the landmark trust makes little from it. It is also overgrown on the outside and needs some tlc. A real waste and great example of how we cock things up big time in England with our heritage assets.
