GO Business Travel in Plymouth

Business Travel in Plymouth Business meetings don’t have to be such a bore, if you find the right location a trip out of the office can be a very pleasant experience indeed.

So for a city that’s equipped with all your business needs, and a lot more besides, look no further than the scenic seaside location of Plymouth.

In terms of getting there, Plymouth is well connected with its own airport, Plymouth City Airport [map], which is located four miles from the city centre. The airport has regular daily flights to and from London Gatwick, Manchester, Newcastle and Jersey.

Plymouth also has good road and rail links from other English cities, with the A38 Devon Expressway leading directly from the city to the country’s motorway network, and trains operating direct from London Paddington, Birmingham and Manchester.

Once you arrive in the city, you will find a number of business and conference facilities that should meet all your needs.

The University of Plymouth [map] has a number of conference centres and meeting rooms that are available for hire all year round. Among them are Robbins Conference Centre, a 250-seat lecture theatre that can either be used as a seminar suite of dining area, and the Sherwell Centre, which provides ground floor exhibition space, along with two lecture halls, one with a grand piano!

Located on the seafront, the Grand Hotel [map] also has numerous top class facilities that can cater for everything from a major conference to one-to-one interviews. The Harlequin Suite is a multi-purpose conference and banqueting suite for 80 people, while the Regency Suite and Regency Lounge both have room for 40 delegates.

Another hotel with a great reputation for business and leisure facilities is the Copthorne Hotel [map], which has a number of meeting rooms and a larger conference centre.

Both of these hotels offer a great base for any business trip and the Copthorne even has its own leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym.

For larger conferences, launch parties or exhibitions check out the Plymouth Pavilions Arena [map], a 3,000 capacity concert hall that can cater for anything from a fashion show to a sporting event.

After a hard day’s work, you’ll want to relax and unwind, so why not head to one of the many exquisite eateries in the city centre, such as the Tanners Restaurant [map] or The Brasserie [map] on Oceans Quay.
