The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Edgcumbe Arms (50 yards)

A traditional county pub on the banks of the river Tamar with views across Plmouth Sound to Drakes Island. Sit by the open fire and enjoy either a quick drink or fresly cooked meal.

Nearest beach

Cremyll Beach (150 yards)

Inaccessible by road but located just 200m across the Tamar from Plymouth. This beach has a mix of stone, sand and shingle - there is only a small sliver of beach at high tide, so you would be wise to check the tides before you visit.

Nearest walk

Cremyll to Portwinkle (½ mile)

An interesting thirteen mile hike along the Cornish Coastal Path with stunning coastal views taking in Mount Edgecombe Country Park and several pretty Cornish villages with obligatory watering holes! Make sure you plan your journey back as public transport in the area is limited.

Nearest town

Torpoint (1 ½ miles)

The first and last Cornish town, Torpoint lies opposite Plymouth, separated from Devon by the Tamar River. It offers the best of both worlds; close proximity to all the urban delights of Plymouth, which has excellent shopping, eating and entertainment, and easy access to Cornwall’s most easterly beaches, like Cawsand, Kingsand and Downderry.

The whole area around Rame Head is a walkers' paradise and the wildlife is abundant. Scenery is magnificent.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

We went in the off-season (October) and found it lovely and quiet, with no large school groups or families to contend with. Not the easiest place to find if you don't know Plymouth, though the parking was good. Overall a good location for seeing the Hoe and visiting the prettier parts of Plymouth harbourside.

The aquarium is of a fair size, but we felt the website was somewhat misleading as to the grandeur of the exhibits. The shark tank felt a bit of a let down, as the viewing wasn't as good as I've seen elsewhere. The design of the place also leads to somewhat unfulfilled expectations, as after the shark tank there is more to see, but it ends quite abruptly at the turtles. With a better route it could definitely be improved, though I give 5* to the quality of the tanks and the health of the animals.

Great for a rainy day

Been twice and the kids loved it both times. Go early on a rainy day in the school holidays as it gets busy.

Finnygook Beach (5 ½ miles)

Beautiful sand and pebble beach, popular with surfers and bodyboarders. Short walk from car park (get there early in summer!) and cafe nearby. Finnygook is the eastern end of Portwrinkle, which itself consists of two beaches and marks the western extremity of Whitsand Bay.

Mrs Defries July 2011

Gorgeous sandy beach just the right size for letting children run free while small enough to still keep an eye on them. Convenient car park and small cafe. Slightly off the beaten track so a great place to get away from the crowds.

Plymouth (2 miles)

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!
