On your next trip to Plymouth make sure to consider our Plymouth car hire services as your means of personal transportation. Plymouth has only gained its city status in 1928 because before 1914 it actually used to be three different settlements.
The city is served by the rather small Plymouth Airport which caters to domestic flights. The Exeter Airport is only a forty-five minute drive away and it sees international flights as well. There hasn’t been a need for a larger local airport due to the fact that Plymouth has been a port city for as long as there has been a settlement in the area. Regardless of this, if you are indeed flying into Plymouth you can have our Plymouth car rental services have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport so that you can start driving towards your destination as soon as possible.
Once in the city you will surely find that there are quite a few things to see and do, considering the characteristics and maritime history of the city visiting the National Marine Aquarium might be a good idea as this is the deepest aquarium in Europe.
The historic core of the city is called the Barbican and this is where you’ll find the country’s oldest bakery and the Mayflower Steps, the starting point from where the pilgrims left for the New World in 1621. The Barbican is populated with restaurants, shops and art galleries as well as a multitude of specialty art shops.
The Barbican is also the place where you’ll find the Plymouth Gin Distillery, a very old building that can be enjoyed by drinkers and non-drinkers alike.
For lovers of theater there’s the Plymouth Theatre Royal which is the largest producing theatre outside of London as well as one of the best attended in the country.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in Plymouth so make sure to employ our Plymouth car hire services in order to get as much out of your trip as possible.
