Sightseeing
Every school child has heard the story of Sir Francis Drake and his game of bowls on Plymouth Hoe as the Spanish Armada was sighted in the English Channel. He is said to have insisted on finishing his game (which incidentally, he lost!) before taking on and defeating the mighty Spanish fleet in 1588. The name ‘Hoe’ derives from Old English and appropriately enough, means ‘high ground’. Today Plymouth Hoe is an open green space overlooking the Sound and is used to host major events. The park as we see it today was largely developed in the 1870s for the Victorians to enjoy, but it has long been a place of entertainment. Bull baiting took place here until 1815 and, of course, bowls have been played here for centuries. The Hoe enjoys a strategic position overlooking Plymouth Sound. In Tudor times a fortress was built here to defend the coastline from attack. This was replaced by the Royal Citadel in the late 17th century. Still occupied by the military today, The Citadel has been in constant use since it was built in 1665.

The Barbican is the name given to the western and northern sides of Sutton Harbour, the original harbour of Plymouth in Devon, England. It was one of the few parts of the city to escape most of the destruction of The Blitz during the Second World War and the preceding era of slum clearance following the Public Health Act 1848 . Two or three streets still retain some of the architecture of an historic fishing port. The Barbican has the largest concentration of cobbled streets in Britain, and contains 100 listed buildings

Saltram House is a grade I listed[1] George II era mansion house located in the parish of Plympton, near Plymouth in Devon, England. It was deemed by the architectural critic Pevsner to be "the most impressive country house in Devon".[2] The house was designed by the architect Robert Adam, who altered and greatly expanded the original Tudor house on two occasions. The drawing room is considered one of Adam's finest interiors. Saltram is one of Britain's best preserved examples of an early Georgian house and retains much of its original decor, plasterwork and furnishings. It contains the Parker family's large collection of paintings, including several by Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792), born and educated at Plympton and a friend of the Parker family. The present building was commenced by John Parker (1703–1768)[3] of nearby Boringdon Hall, Plympton, and of Court House North Molton, both in Devon, together with his wife Catherine Poulett (1706-1758), a daughter of John Poulett, 1st Earl Poulett.[4] It was completed by his son John Parker, 1st Baron Boringdon (1735-1788), whose son was John Parker, 1st Earl of Morley (1772-1840). The Parker family had risen to prominence in the mid-16th century as the bailiff of the manor of North Molton, Devon, under Baron Zouche of Haryngworth.[5] In 1957 Saltram House was donated by the Parker family to the National Trust in lieu of death duties, and is open to the public. Saltram House was used as one of several local settings for the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility.
