GO Romantic in Plymouth

Romantic Evenings in Plymouth If you’re planning a romantic break check out what Plymouth has to offer because this city is packed with luxury hotels, fine restaurants and great attractions, which are perfect for starry-eyed lovers.

To set the mood you’ll first have to find a top class hotel with all the little extras that will put you and your loved one in the mood for some serious romance. So how about booking your room at the Plymouth Hoe Moat House [map], which is part of the national hotel chain and has a range of great facilities, including a restaurant, health club and swimming pool.

Alternatively you could try The Grand Hotel [map] just off the famous Plymouth Hoe, which has executive suites for that extra special occasion. The facilities here include a bar, restaurants and fitness leisure club.

Once you’ve made yourself at home in your hotel room, why not head out into the historic city centre and see some of the sights.

Why not take a stroll hand-in-hand along Plymouth Hoe, where you can stop off at one of the many attractions, such as the Plymouth Dome [map], where you travel back in time to relive some of the city’s historic events, or the Royal Citadel [map], a dramatic fort that was commissioned by King Charles II in 1665.

Also worth a visit is Plymouth’s famous Barbican district, where you can wander around Elizabethan House [map] on New Street, an amorous building restored to how it would have looked in the 16th century.

For more Tudor delights head to the Elizabethan Garden [map], a delightful little oasis of tranquillity where you can catch a sneaky kiss or two.

Another must-see on The Barbican is The Mayflower Stepss [map] at the entrance to Sutton Harbour, where the Pilgrim Fathers, and their wives, set off on their journey to America in 1620.

Plymouth is also home to one of the world's great natural harbours, Plymouth Sound, and you can enjoy a colourful trip along this picturesque estuary with Plymouth Boat Cruises Ltd.

As the evening begins to draw in you’ll want to head off somewhere special for a romantic dinner for two. So why not try Café Rouge [map] just off St Andrews Cross, a superb restaurant serving classic French cuisine including plenty of seafood to get you in the mood for love.

Alternatively, you could head for The Brasserie [map] on the scenic Mayflower Marina, where you can enjoy delicious seafood, or Artillery Tower Restaurant [map] on Durnford Street, where the menu includes asparagus risotto and grilled sea bass.

Once you’ve finished your slap-up meal you’ll want to finish the night in style, so why not pay a visit to one of Plymouth’s magnificent theatres, such as the Theatre Royal [map], where you can catch a West End musical or the Plymouth Guildhall [map], where you can see a leading orchestra in action.

If you would prefer to spend the night kissing on the back row at the movies then check out the Vue Cinema [map] at the Barbican Leisure Park, which shows the latest Hollywood blockbusters, or the Plymouth Arts Centre [map] on Looe Street, which has a wide range of independent films.
