Why should you visit Plymouth

Plymouth is the second largest city in the south-west, and its rich history means it offers a wonderful array of attractions and architecture to inspire any traveller. Plymouth was, for a long time, the main trading port for the south and has inspired many smuggling and pirate stories throughout the years. In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World from the port and established the Plymouth Colony in the United States of America.

During the First World War Plymouth was the port of entry for military troops from the Empire and during the Second World War this city was almost completely destroyed. Redevelopment quickly took place from 1943 to 1957. Plymouth’s history makes it one of the most interesting cities in the UK, making it a must on anyone’s travel list.

Best time of the year to visit Plymouth

As a general rule, English weather is often unpredictable. Plymouth’s weather is no different, however, attractions and museums are open most of the year round and there is always something to discover come rain or shine. Plymouth’s coastal location means its climate is often determined by the Gulf Stream and the sea’s weather, therefore it is often windy, especially on the coastal paths and parks.

Citybase recommends the summer and spring months between April to September, when the weather is more likely to be sunny and the gardens and parks around the area make a wonderful place to visit.

Places to eat in Plymouth

Plymouth is abundant with places to eat and take away from. With a fish market in the city you can buy fresh produce to take back to your serviced apartment to make homemade cuisine.

Alternatively, there are many international and gourmet restaurants to choose from. Seafood is obviously a specialty but if that doesn’t hold your fancy then many vegetarian dishes, steak houses, and global eateries can be found throughout the city. Both independent and high street names are brimming on each street.
