A Plymouth landmark, the Royal William Yard has become the most prestigious address in the City for both residents, the hospitality industry and office occupiers alike. The Royal William Yard is the most exciting mixed-use development in Plymouth, situated on a 15-acre site with dramatic views over the Hamoaze to Cornwall and, from the adjoining Devils Point Park, across Plymouth Sound.
As well as fantastic architecture and amazing views, the Yard boasts a cafe, restaurants, bars, shops and gallerys. There is an on-site marina offering berthing and mooring on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, as well as an hourly water bus service between the Yard and the Barbican, a novel way for visitors to travel to the Yard. There is also a bike and paddleboard hire available.
The award-winning redevelopment of the Royal William Yard is being undertaken by Urban Splash.

Royal William Yard Reviews
When is 'william yard going to except taxis are a viral part of this centre? Resturants and bars are good but the availability of casual/Hackney type taxis is a joke! more »
Royal William Yard has lots of good restaurants and other places but the yard is so poorly lit that if you visit in the dark it’s hard to even locate the Place you’ve booked! Parking signs are not... more »
The history of Royal William Yard is fascinating. Many of the old buildings have been turned into apartments and others into restaurants and bars, galleries and shops. The local ferry stops here its a lovely place for families to visit.
Brilliant, modern accommodation. All the restaurants and bars are lovely - doesn't matter which one you choose. They can all get a little busy of a weekend but that's only a result of their success. The regular food market is nice, with some fantastic bits on offer. Beware again though, it gets very busy on these days and I'd get public transport down there to save headaches.
