Plymouth is the 2nd largest city in the south west after Bristol. Sitting directly on the sea in a beautiful natural harbour, since the city's origins it has been a seafaring town.

Plymouth started as most city's do, a town which gradually edges outwards swallowing up the local villages which are now just areas of the city such as the ancient parish of St Beaudeax and Plymstock.

The main areas of Plymouth which would be of most interest to a visitor would probably be the Olde Worlde Barbican and the historical Hoe with their great history and views.

Plymouth and her surrounding areas have plenty to keep you busy with beautiful beaches, being within a few miles of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park .The wonderful country of Cornwall on Plymouth's doorstep, plus of course the city itself.

Plymouth is still today the number one fishing port in the south west of England. Visit the Mayflower Centre for information on the Plymouth fishing industry and local economy

    Recently went to a wedding near Tavistock and stayed at South Hooe. That's such a lovely part of the SW.. my friend has settled in Callington. We're lucky Yanks. :-)

    Many lovely places in your beautiful photos. Would love to see the Elisabethan Gardens and travel on all those ferries.

    Nicola, your Plymouth pages were a delight to read and view. I would enjoy the Naval Day activities the best. Some great hidden gems in this interesting place. You have some well composed photos with visual interest and vivid color. Great work.
