Plymouth's best bits

There's so much to see and do here - why not head over to for your complete guide to the city.

The City Centre is a great place to shop, eat and features a variety of events throughout the year. 

The cobbled streets of Barbican & Sutton Harbour are packed full of restaurants, pubs and cafes. 

Plymouth's Waterfront destinations offer something for everyone including Plymouth's Royal William Yard which is full of Grade 1 former Royal Naval buildings which have now been converted into cafes, bars, restaurants and galleries.

Take our no.3 bus out of the city and the beautiful countryside of South Devon quickly surrounds you. The route takes you through historic market towns all the way down to Dartmouth. Or why not take our Gold bus all the way to Totnes and Torbay?
