Britain’s Ocean City
Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions for everyone. No matter what your age or interest, Plymouth truly does have something for everyone. Whether you have chosen Plymouth for a family break, a romantic retreat or simply a weekend destination – Britain’s Ocean City is the perfect destination choice.
We think Plymouth is the most exciting city, with sensational restaurants that are internationally renowned, fabulously charming bars, a wonderful free museum and too many iconic sights to mention! Plymouth is a clean, safe and welcoming city, the perfect location for your leisure break.
Although heavily hit in the Blitz, Plymouth still has wonders and gems that date back to sensational years gone by, with its new build post-war, said to be beautiful and heroic according to Kevin McCloud, the designer and presenter of the television programme Grand Designs. And if the Great British weather is really inclement there are plenty of indoor play centres, multiplex cinema’s and ten-pin bowling at the Barbican Leisure Park – all guaranteed to keep you and your children amused!
Plymouth also boasts two pioneering theatres, an entertainment complex, two casinos, many bars and restaurants and a good shopping centre, all in easy walking distance of Strathmore House Apartments. Step out onto the street, turn left and enjoy the view of the sea, stroll past Tinside Lido and along the promenade to Plymouth’s famous Hoe, then carry on towards the historic Barbican. Your walk will be rewarded with cobbled narrow streets, Tudor buildings, a working harbour and marinas to explore. Or simply stop, with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, sit, relax and soak up Plymouth’s special atmosphere.
Whether your leisure choice is out on the water or being entertained at leading and pioneering venues, enjoying art and culture, learning about history and British heritage, visiting the aquarium or the Tinside Lido, walking the quaint cobbled quayside or sampling Plymouth Gin, Plymouth has it all and more, in abundance.
