- The Hoe where Drake played his famous game of bowls before dealing with the Spanish Armada. The Mayflower Steps in the historic Barbican where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from to America in
l621, the links with Hawkins, Raleigh, Frobisher, and, of course, the magnificent natural harbour which remains with very little change.
The City Museum in Drake Circus (open daily) has a fine collection of exhibits illustrating the city’s history.
Plymouth has many fine shops and interesting historic houses and gardens to visit.
