Taking the Bus from Exeter

Getting into Plymouth by Bus

Plymouth sits on an impressive natural harbour and is home to the Royal Dockyards. Also home to the British Navy, it is the largest naval base in Europe. The historic heart of the city is The Barbican. Among its narrow streets are shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries. A short distance away is Smeaton's Tower, which originally stood on the Eddystone Reef. A climb to the top is rewarded with stunning views.

It is just a short walk from Plymouth Bretonside Bus and Coach Station to the waterfront, The Barbican and Plymouth Hoe, where Sir Francis Drake awaited the Spanish Armada. There are regular local bus services covering the city centre and suburbs, as well as the Devon countryside and local region. There are late evening buses but no night services.
