Plymouth is the gateway to the South West of England, we are served by a main Great Western Railway link from London Paddington and by Cross Country Trains north to the Midlands and Scotland. Plymouth is approximately 3 hours from London by train. The best airport to fly into is London Heathrow, which has a direct rail line to Paddington station.

Plymouth is quite a chilled-out and relaxed place, which helped me to settle in. I really like Royal William Yard and I love the Hoe. It was the first time I’d had an ocean view in my hometown so it was really amazing. And I like the pubs!
