On first arrival in Plymouth it appeared that there wasn’t a lot to do. The night life only seemed average and the choice of eating establishments for students limited. But as time went on the quirkiness began to emerge, highlighting how much Plymouth has to offer. Drakes circus, has the majority of desired high street shops and is located very close to the Barbican where more restaurants and cocktail bars can be found on the sea front. A short walk from this you’ll find the Hoe, perfect for a BBQ in the midst of summer or a pleasant walk all year round. North Hill is where you’ll find the more unique, student orientated places at lower prices and offering more creative products. There are also more hidden gems than first meet the eye, including the Elizabethan Gardens. To summarise, Plymouth has a lot to offer, but it may not seem like it straight away. You have to do a bit of searching and also be have an understanding that it is not necessarily the night clubs that make the night but in fact the people you go with.
