Come and join us in historic Plymouth, for an exciting and interesting weekend in the heart of the West Country.

Plymouth is Britain’s “Ocean City” and is home to the largest naval base in Western Europe, supporting the Royal Navy since 1691. It is an ideal base for a visit to many interesting and historic sites and is on the border between Devon and Cornwall. Train times from London from 3 hours. Highlights will include:

Visit to the Naval base and a Nuclear Submarine; National Marine Aquarium tours; Naval Base boat trips; Plymouth Gin Distillery tours; Eden project visit (by coach); Bowls on the Hoe (Francis Drake style); Visits to National Trust properties; Plymouth pub crawl.

We will be staying in one of the best hotels in Plymouth, recently upgraded to a Crowne Plaza and very close to the centre of the city and the historic Hoe.

We are working on an exciting programme of events for you which will span from Friday to Sunday. There will be lots to do and enjoy - we look forward to your company. Please click here to register your interest to receive the programme via email when it is launched.
