A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Plymouth

Plymouth is fast becoming a sleek, cosmopolitan destination with much to offer the visitor. The architectural eyesores of the 60s and 70s are steadily being torn down to be replaced by chic, contemporary buildings and the city is changing to accommodate great shopping, swanky bars, cafes and gourmet restaurants. The historic ‘Hoe’, the vast public space next to the water is a wonderful place to soak up the view across Plymouth Sound to Drake’s Island.

Plymouth then Wembury

If you like natural Devon/Cornwall then do not bother with Plymouth it is very pleasant but much the same as any other seaside place and reminded me of Portsmouth.

We also visited Wembury which is a nice part of the coastline - rugged and very pleasant rocky beach but worth a visit to see the structure of the rocks!

Plymouth - a plethora of pleasures!

My family all come from Plymouth, so I am slightly biased, although I have never lived there myself, but Plymouth has most things you could ask of a city, plus the added benefit of a fantastic seaside setting! It has benefitted from regeneration in recent years, and the upgrade is on-going - the new shopping centre definately takes up a full day in itself!
