Plymouth Visitor information

Plymouth is a port city in Devon, southwest England. It’s known for its maritime heritage and historic Barbican district with narrow, cobbled streets. 

Plymouth is a city shaped by the fortunes of sea, trade and war, nowhere more so than in the historic Barbican. Plymouth's delightful old port, full of narrow cobbled streets, Elizabethan warehouses, specialist shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants.The perfect place to find an original souvenir of Plymouth.

The centre of Plymouth’s historic Barbican overlooking Sutton Harbour, the Mayflower Centre is both a Tourist Information Office and a fascinating museum. The Mayflower Museum brings to life the cramped reality of being aboard the Mayflower for the 102 Pilgrims and 30 odd crew who made the journey, and is well worth a visit to find out more about the founding fathers of America and their struggle to carve out a life in a new land.

A landmark of Plymouth, the Smeaton's Tower has become one of the South West's most well-known lighthouses. Originally built on the Eddystone reef in 1759 but was taken down in the early 1880s when it was discovered that the sea was undermining the rock it was standing on. Restored to its original glory on place on the Hoe, Smeaton's Tower offers fantastic views of Plymouth Sound and the city from its lantern room which, along with the rest of the building,

History of Plymouth

The origins of Plymouth can be traced back to Saxon times, more than a thousand years ago, and its history very much reflects its maritime location. 

And one of the most celebrated expeditions will probably be the Mayflower Steps, as the story goes, in 1620, the pilgrim Fathers were persecuted for their puritain beliefs on eastern England. A group of 120 pilgrims set sail from Plymouth for the new world on board of the Mayflower. After a long journey, they arrived in the promised land and became the founding fathers of modern-day America. The actual steps the pilgrims left from no longer exist. A granite block bearing the ship’s name marks the approximate site, while a tablet commemorating the voyage was erected alongside in 1891.

In the middle of the 8th century a party of Christian colonists sailed into Sutton Harbour, set their farm a short distance upstream and built their church on a ridge to the west of the farmhouse. The Anglican church has therefore got 1.200 years old of history and stood here in the heart of the community all of this time. 

The Cathedral Church of Saint Mary and Saint Boniface in Plymouth, England, is since its opening in 1858 the seat of the Bishop of Plymouth and mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth, which covers the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. Plymouth was nominated as the centre for the Cathedral because it was where they were more Catholics in town than Exeter.
