If you like views of the sea combined with history with Drakes island within your vista, and then on your right is Cornwall and the beautiful views of Mount Edgecumbe. Then this is the place to be. Plenty to see and do.

We enjoyed walking around the edge of the water and reading about the Mayflower and other aspects of Plymouth in England's history as well as America's. Even on a cool, rainy day, it was worth the trip! (Nov. 2017)
