Join me on your very own micro adventure where wonder leads to wandering and life is a little more delicious with some local Devon food! We’ll walk, take a ferry, talk and have plenty of opportunities for photographs too. Allow 3-4hrs for this experience, to include food and make it your own! History oozes from the cobblestones in Plymouth but you don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy what this amazing city has to offer. Plymouth hosts the most fabulous events: the Firework Competition over two nights in August; spectacular theatre and live music events; art exhibitions and food festivals galore. The 28 KM of coastline has witnessed the development of the Navy; hosted the America’s Cup and the World ‘Transat’ races; celebrated the most famous circumnavigations of the world over the past 500 years and hosted a pod of dolphins earlier this year! The Box will soon become our newest treasure (come and find out!) and we have pledged to be the first city to go plastic free.
