Once an important departure point for immigrants sailing for the New World, Plymouth is now mostly known for being one of the world’s most impressive natural harbors.
Get out of town with these interesting Plymouth side-trips: Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden (in St Ives), St. Michael's Mount (in Marazion) and Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (in Paignton). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Eden Project, take in nature's colorful creations at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, have some family-friendly fun at Virtual Jet Centre, and pause for some photo ops at Winston Churchill Memorial Gardens.

To see reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Plymouth itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Exeter International Airport, Cardiff International Airport and Bristol Airport. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to drive to Gloucester.

Gloucester is a city and district in southwest England, the county city of Gloucestershire. On the 24th (Tue), get your game on at Cotswold Archery, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Cotswolds Distillery, then delve into the distant past at Tewkesbury Abbey, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gloucester Cathedral. On the 25th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: look for all kinds of wild species at Walks With Hawks, see the interesting displays at Corinium Museum, and then head outdoors with The Cotswold Range.

Plan my Gloucester trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Plymouth to Gloucester takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. In December in Gloucester, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 6°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive back home.
