A road trip in Cornwall is a fantastic holiday choice. Plymouth is located just miles away from Cornwall. The city is also an excellent choice of destination, and there’s plenty to see and do, especially with kids in tow.
Plymouth is a port city with a rich military history. One of the main outdoor sights is the Barbican. Explore the hundreds of fishing boats and yachts docked, try some of the UK’s best fish and chips or find the Mayflower Steps, where the Pilgrims set off to discover America. Within walking distance of the Barbican is Plymouth Hoe, home to Smeatons Tower and stunning views out to sea towards Plymouth Sound. There’s plenty of open space here for the kids to run around too!
The National Marine Aquarium is a must-visit on a trip to Plymouth with kids. Explore the largest aquarium in the UK and spot over 4000 different species.
You should also consider where to stay in Plymouth on your trip. I recommend staying in the city centre, where there are various accommodation options to suit all budgets. For a place to stay with cooking facilities, consider staying in the Fox House Studios, at the heart of Plymouth’s shopping area and very nearby the Barbican.
If you’re on a budget, the city centre has three Premier Inn’s which all feature family rooms at reasonable prices, as well as the chance to add on breakfast. The Travelodge also has some excellent deals. The best place to stay in the city centre is the Juries Inn, which has comfy beds and an excellent breakfast.
