Plymouth, the UK's 'Ocean City,' is steeped in history - it is the port from which the founding fathers set off aboard the Mayflower in 1620, destined to discover the new world - America. In 2020, the city will celebrate the 400th anniversary of that epic voyage. Along with its historical interest, these days the city is home to many cultural and traditional attractions, as well as offering the perfect base to discover more of Devon and neighbouring Cornwall.
Considered by many as one of Cornwall's best kept secrets, Whitsand Bay is home to miles of unspoilt sandy beaches. Tucked away in South East Cornwall on the Rame Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Whitsand Bay offers you the chance to get away from the crowds and discover Cornwall's true, natural beauty. From clifftop cafés, the South West Coast Path and sleepy fishing villages dotted along the coast, there's so much to explore.
