Plymouth is the vibrant regional capital of Devon and Cornwall. A thriving modern city, Plymouth offers a rich combination of maritime heritage and natural beauty. The magnificent harbour is a world centre for sailing and speedboat racing with Plymouth Hoe looking out across the English Channel with panoramic views over the two counties.

This maritime city is well known throughout the world with a history dating from the 10th century, including many voyages of discovery and exploration. Visit the Barbican where in 1620 The Pilgrim Fathers set sail from the Mayflower Steps to found the New World in America. Here you will also find Island House, one of the oldest buildings in Plymouth, where the Puritans slept on their last night before departing on their epic voyage to America. Only a step away you will see The Elizabethan House, the furnished home of an Elizabethan merchant, dating back to 1584 with its restored kitchen and fragrant flower and herb garden.
