A bustling waterfront, copious attractions and beautiful mountainside – Plymouth is a hidden gem among the bigger UK cities. London may have the glamour and the culture, Edinburgh has the history and tradition, yet there aren’t many more enjoyable places in Great Britain than Plymouth’s serene coastline. The beauty of the bodies of water residing in Plymouth Sound doesn’t just appeal aesthetically, regardless of the weather it is a charming place to bask in the peaceful environment whilst watching the passing ships. Once by the shore, it is worth walking along the golden sands of the beaches, which are ideal for rock pooling and swimming. For the more adventurous, there are watersports available that are run by respected and trusted companies.
Much like many coastal cities, Plymouth relies on its waterfront to attract tourists, yet there is much more to the city than the harbour. Various attractions are scattered around the city; the Barbican is perfect for anyone with a penchant for quaint buildings, cosy cafes and cobbled streets.

For public transport, there are many bus services that cover most of the city. For private transfers, water taxis and boats operate throughout the summer, and regular taxis run all year round.
