Travel Tips for Plymouth

Navy Days

by freya_heaven

Navy Days is the biggest British forces public event, and it takes place at the huge Devonport Navel Base in Plymouth (the largest base in Western Europe).

There are many events going on, both plane & helicopter fly bys, a few navel boats you can explore which you have relatively free access too and usually an open submarine. We visited in 2003 & It is quite a high spirited event, with the opportunity to meet both British and foreign navy men & women.

I recommend you use the park & ride facility, they expect a minimum of 20,000 visitors a day, so get there early. 2004 prices were 10.00 pounds for adults 5 pounds for children 5-15. Navy days is usually the last weekend in August.

A PINT OF TRIBUTE IS NOT COMPLETE WITHOUT...

by yozza2005 about The Dolphin

The Dolphin probably serves the best pint of Tribute Ale in Plymouth.
It's probably the most reasonably priced too.

Located on the barbican, you can't miss it if you are wandering towards the aquarium. anything!

The Citadel

by stevezero

With its imposing 20m high walls, the Royal Citadel dominates the eastern end of Plymouth Hoe and hints at the key role the city has played in England's naval history.
For over 100 years the Citadel was the most important English defence against attack from the sea and it remains one of Europe's finest 17th Century fortifications.
The Citadel was built on the orders of King Charles II in 1665 as a defence against a threatened Dutch invasion and has been in continuous use ever since.
Believing the Navy 'vital to the safety, honour and welfare of the realm', the King was determined to protect Plymouth's military and commercial harbour.

Drake's Island

by stevezero

Drake's Island is a samll island in the Plymouth Sound, just in front of the Hoe. it has long been used as afortification to defend the port of Plymouth. Known in medieval times as St Nicholas' Island and fortified since the15th C. The defences were improved in the late 16th C and again circa 1859. It was garrisoned until after the Second World War and then in 1964 it was leased to the National Trust.

Beautiful Dartmoor

by MaryGolda

Hi everyone! I live near the Dartmoor National Park, and I want to share this glorious area of Devon with you all. All of the Foot and Mouth restrictions have now been lifted and I'll soon go and take some great pictures of places around and on the Moor. Meanwhile, please look at some pictures from the Dartmoor National Park Authority.
