A vibrant and colourful waterfront city blessed with iconic landmarks, historical sites and some truly gorgeous natural assets to explore and fall in love with, Plymouth is a unique and fascinating city to explore for the first or the fiftieth time!
Landmarks include the Mayflower Steps, from which the founding fathers of the USA set sail in the 17th century, the thriving fish markets and marinas known as the Plymouth Fisheries, the iconic Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse and the Tinside Lido, with its truly spectacular restored art deco swimming pool. All of this can be capped off with a boat trip around the Plymouth Sound, which is flanked by the inimitable Cornish coastline.
The area is very popular with hikers and cyclists thanks to its wealth of stunning views, and Dartmoor National Park is an area of genuine natural splendour; a living, breathing, working landscape with a past that stretches back through the ages.
The city is also no slouch when it comes to food and drink. Fresh seafood is obviously a major draw wherever you choose to dine in the city, and the annual Seafood Festival pays testament to that heritage. If fish isn’t your flavour, the city also hosts the Flavour Fest in June, which hosts over 100 traders selling everything from Cornish chilli and cheeses to Somerset cider. Plymouth is also famous for its gin, so why not indulge yourself at the Plymouth Gin Distillery?

Coach Hire Plymouth
If you’re planning a trip to or from Plymouth, or anywhere in the Devonshire area for that matter, we can hook you up with the perfect coach operator for your needs. Whether you’re travelling north to Exeter, south to Penzance or even further afield, if you are travelling in a larger group a coach is really the only way to travel (particularly in the southwest, where train lines are still peerlessly unreliable). Our coach operators know the area well enough to get you where you need to go with minimum fuss, and the range of coaches they can offer is truly staggering. From plush luxury to basic, affordable comfort, there is an option suitable for any budget.
All of the 195+ operators we work with have already been fully vetted by us, so you can rest assured that you’ll be getting a quality service from a company you can trust, whether you choose to go with an independent shop or a national company. Our service is remarkably simple to use. Input your details (destination, party size, etc) and we’ll get back to you in a matter of minutes with up to four comprehensive, no-obligation quotes from our network of trusted operators. Simply choose the quote that best fits your needs and requirements and then book your coach and driver online or over the phone. It will take you minutes and could save you a small fortune!
Minibus Hire Plymouth
Planning a trip to Plymouth, but feel as if a coach might be a little too hefty and cumbersome for your requirements? Look no further than our minibus hire comparison service. As most of our coach operators also stock a fleet of minibuses, you’ll be ordering from the same network and will enjoy the same top-tier service.
The minibuses our operators use can hold up to 30 people, which is perfect for smaller groups or even larger families. They are also a lot smaller and therefore more flexible than coaches, so are perfectly suited to manoeuvre the old, winding roads that are ubiquitous in the southwest.
