Sutton Harbour is a wonderful location that blends with the area known as the Barbican.
Sutton Harbor Marina is home to many world class events
Berth in the sheltered Marina and enjoy the nearby restaurants and National Marine Aquarium.
Sutton Pool (as the area was known back in 1620) is the birthplace of modern America as this is the exact place the Mayflower sailed to America from Plymouth. This fact is taken from Master Christopher Jones ships logs.
There will soon be a Sutton Harbour Heritage Trail and the Pilgrims will happily take you for a stroll back in time!
Often called the Jewel in the Crown. The Hoe (means higher ground) and is quite spectacular with its vista stretching from the South Hams to Cornwall.

A centrepiece on Plymouth’s Hoe, Smeaton’s Tower has become one of the South West’s most well known landmarks.
The lighthouse was originally built on the Eddystone reef in 1759 at a cost of £40,000, but was taken down in the early 1880s when it was discovered that the sea was undermining the rock it was standing on.
Approximately two thirds of the structure was moved stone by stone to its current resting place on the Hoe.
We are hoping to see a character Lighthouse Keeper in situ soon! All to be of help to visitors…
