Plymouth in Devon is in the South West of England. It lies in between two rivers called Plym and Tamar and this has influenced the economy as this has been dominated for centuries by the shipbuilding industry. Lately Plymouth has gone more into the service sector, but shipping is still a part of Plymouth as there are ferry crossings from here to France and Spain. If you do not have sea legs you can always fly to some European destinations at the international airport. Another business heavily influenced by the shipping industry are the Gin distilleries. They have been boosted by the Royal Marines who have taken the Gin all over the world since it was first distilled here in the late 1700's.
In the summer Plymouth can be a lovely and sunny place with up to 1600 hours of sun in the summer months. The weather is largely influenced then by high pressures across the Azores. If the weather is not that good you can do some indoor shopping in Drake Circus shopping centre. This was opened in 2006 amidst claims it was already 10 years out of date, even before opening. We will withhold judgement and let you decide for yourself. If the weather permits you can visit Union Street. This is the heart of everything that goes on in Plymouth.
The Palace Theatre plays an important part in Plymouth history as this attracted sailors of the Royal Navy on their days off. This meant that even icons like Charlie Chaplin performed here, because the sailors would come to see him whenever they could. The Theatre Royal is another hotspot to watch some good theatre. The Plymouth Pavilions offer something for everyone. Be it basketball matches or music concerts or even an evening of Stand-Up Comedy.
Some lovely sights you might want to take in include: The Naval War Memorial, Saltram House, The National Armada Memorial and Smeaton's Tower (lighthouse).
A sight you might want to admire from the outside, but not so much from the inside could be the combined Crown and County Court. Pay special attention to the intriguing art work above the main entrance.
