Plymouth Guide

The English city of Plymouth is located on the south coast of the county of Devon, in the south west of the Britain. It is around 300 km to the south west of London and is located between the mouths of the River Plym and the River Tamar, where they both join Plymouth Sound. The city's history is inextricably linked to the sea and in its time the city has been, or still is, a hub for shipbuilding and seafaring in general. It is also home to the largest operational naval base in Western Europe, Her Majesty's Naval Base Devonport.

The city's waterfront areas have many attractions for visitors to enjoy. The Barbican's cobbles quayside are definitely worth strolling through where visitors can follow in the Pilgrim father's footsteps. Alternatively, the National Marine Aquarium with its deep water fish tanks is also worth a visit. Then there is the Blackfriars Gin Distillery, where Plymouth's finest export can be tasted or simply take a boat trip around Plymouth Sound from Mayflower Steps.

Ferry services to Roscoff in France and Santander in Spain depart from the city's port. There is also a passenger service operating to the Cornish hamlet of Cremyll, which is believed to have been in operation since 1204.


Roscoff Guide

The French village of Roscoff lies on the north coast of Brittany and is a perfect introduction to everything Brittany has to offer. A popular attraction in the city are the 16th century granite buildings that jostle against the coast along with the many restaurants that serve excellent local produce and the small galleries and gift shops. The town specialises in seafood dishes and traditional Breton crêpes, which you can enjoy at one of the many street-side crêperies.

Alternatively, sample some famous Brittany thalassotherapy - rejuvenating, healing and relaxing therapies using seawater and sea products. Brittany is one of the 27 regions of France, occupying a large peninsula in the north west of the country, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south, and its capital is Rennes.

The port has been operational since 1973 although passengers won't find extensive facilities at the terminal. Ferry services depart to both Rosslare and Cork in Ireland. Crossing times are around 17 hours to Rosslare and 13 hours to Cork.
