Curious About Plymouth gives an exciting glimpse into what makes this historic maritime city what it is.
Our two unique walks can be enjoyed separately, or joined together to form one longer walk, depending upon available time and energy! They will expand your knowledge, entertain and challenge you, and help you to stay mentally and physically fit! Walks typically take 1 to 2 hours each.
Walk 1: The Hoe to Sutton Harbour
From The Hoe are incredible views out to sea, with small ships scuttling by, and majestic warships plying their way to secret places. See the bowling green where Drake played before attacking the Spanish Armada. Walk alongside an historic Guildhall, and ancient churches. Sample some humbler streets in Old Town, then end your walk at the bustling Barbican district, and the busy harbour's edge.
Sutton Harbour to West Pier
Passing an historic gin distillery, and colourful shops, this walk takes you down a narrow street, purpose built in the 16th century for wealthy merchants and prosperous sea captains. A chance to visit an enchanting Elizabethan Gardens before walking by the Royal Citadel, built in the 17th century on the site of a fort. Finish your walk at West Pier, from where the Pilgrim Fathers once sailed to colonise America.
Have fun and stay curious!
