This week I headed down to the Naval port of Plymouth where I spent a few days exploring the impressive history of the port and surrounding area. Plymouth is famous for many things and is well worth a few days visit. I was lucky enough to enjoy some great Spring weather during my three day stay. Although much of the city was bombed out during the ‘Plymouth Blitz’ some of the old harbour remains – there are some great places to grab a bite to eat or enjoy a beer. Plymouth Hoe is definitely worth a visit and affords spectacular views out across Plymouth sound. Mount Batten is either a short ferry ride or a long walk – if you do walk be sure to take some binoculars and check out the estuary bird life.
