Plymouth Synagogue

Reviewed By Gin C - Plymouth, United Kingdom

Jerry, the Synagogue caretaker, is so knowlegeable about the history of Plymouth, the Synagogue and the Orthodox Jewish community who worshiped there over the centuries and brings it all to life clearly in an interesting and entertaining way. We were there over 2 hours and could easily have spent longer - it was so fascinating and informative. How could I be so familiar with Plymouth and never been to this little gem before?

Cremyll Ferry

Reviewed By Pilgrimgreen - Harpenden, United Kingdom

Pleasant easy hop from Admirals Hard to Mount Edgcumbe. Very cost effective (single fares cost £1.50 for adults, 75p for kids) for the 8 minute journey. The views of the Tamar are a bonus. Sit on the upper deck if the weather allows.

Reviewed By ywurry - Dewsbury, United Kingdom

Was a beautifully sunny day when I went on the coastal segway trail. It was great fun and the views across the water were amazing.
The instructor/guide was very knowledgeable and helped us get full use of the segway with a downhill slalom (s if skiing) as well as ducking through trees etc.
The only downside was I paid for the photos to be taken and there has been a hitch in uploading these. To date (3 weeks hence) I am still waiting to view these and have confirmation from the company that this has been actioned.

Saltash Waterside

Reviewed By shahsampler - shepperton

It's ok down by the Saltash waterside with the towering Bridges dominating the skyline. It's pretty enough but quite small with lovely views. There is a pub (the union inn) down there with a union jack painted over the whole of the front of it. Need to choose carefully as to who should go in (if you get my meaning)!

A superb landscaped park, fallow deer, woodland and coastal walks and marvellous view, combine to make Mount Edgcumbe one of the most spectacular attractions in the West Country at any time of the year. One of only three Grade I Listed Gardens in Cornwall.

It’s a great place to visit just across the water from Plymouth. Lovely formal Gardens and countryside walks. There some beach areas and a duck pond too.

Visited here on a rainy afternoon. The staff explained the workings of the mill and demonstrated how everything worked. A lady was baking using their own flour and the biscuits tasted great. Well worth a visit.
