Trains to Plymouth

An up-and-coming modern city with a historic maritime past, Plymouth boasts some of the most beautiful scenery found in the UK. The sea views of the Plymouth Sound are breathtaking as is the mostly untouched Barbican harbour, home to the UK's largest aquarium and the famous dock from which The Mayflower and the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World. Opened in 1877, the station is a contemporary pillar of the city's 21st century rebirth after suffering hideously during the WW2 Blitz. Now the city is a notorious hotspot for nightlife, with a burgeoning student population making Plymouth one of the most exciting cities of the South West. All the action is within fifteen minutes walk of the station and easily accessed by clearly signed pedestrian subways leading down to the harbour, city centre, Plymouth University, Drake Circus shopping centre and the Black Friars Gin Distillery, which dates back to the 1400s.
