The Duke of Cornwall Hotel is ideally positioned on the fringe of Plymouth’s vibrant city centre. Plymouth offers a great selection of big brand and independent shops, cinemas, eateries and nightlife.

Just across the road from the hotel is Plymouth Pavilions, one of the South West’s leading entertainment venues, which attracts world-class music artists and comedians. A short walk away, you’ll find Theatre Royal Plymouth, which stages top West End productions.

The hotel is also just a stroll from Plymouth Hoe. This famous promenade offers sensational ocean views across Plymouth Sound, one of the world’s finest natural harbours.

Wander around the waterfront to reach Sutton Harbour and the Barbican. Here, you’ll find the Mayflower Steps, the renowned site from which the Pilgrim Fathers set sail to settle in America in 1620. This centuries-old area features a fantastic array of independent shops, restaurants and traditional pubs – and boasts the highest concentration of cobbled streets anywhere in Britain.

You’ll also find the National Marine Aquarium here. This attraction hosts the UK’s deepest tank and counts sharks and seahorses among its array of ocean life.

Another gem hosted on Plymouth’s Barbican is the Black Friars distillery. This is England’s oldest working gin distillery and home to one of the city’s best-loved exports, Plymouth Gin, which you can sample on a visitor tour.

Another must-visit Plymouth spot is the Royal William Yard, found a short distance from the hotel. This unique site lays claim to the biggest collection of Grade I listed military buildings in Europe.

Central Park, on the edge of the city centre, is undergoing a multi-million-pound refurbishment, introducing innovative public sports and leisure facilities in this prime spot. Its play park offers plenty of fun for the children, and the park’s expansive paths and meadows are ideal for a stroll, a run or a leisurely picnic. A little farther out, you can visit Saltram Park and Mount Edgcumbe. These public parks feature abundant open grounds, stunning views and magnificent historic manor houses.

Beyond the city lie some of the UK’s most picturesque rural spots. Dartmoor, a short drive from Plymouth, is a breathtakingly rugged wilderness area known for its towering tors and resident wild ponies.

For wonderful views and sea air, explore some of the 630-mile walking route of the South West Coast Path.
