With a population of around 13 million inhabitants, the bustling metropolis of London couldn't be more different from the bright and cheerful seaside town of Plymouth. Both are tourist hotspots with great attractions, but that's pretty much where the similarity ends; Plymouth has a population of just 257,000 and is far quieter, calmer and easier to navigate than the capital city.

One of the great features of Plymouth is how close it is to a wide range of excellent beaches. Wembury is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is owned by the National Trust, and offers guided rock pool rambles and somewhere clean and safe to swim. Blackpool Sands beach is a little further out, but features a long stretch of sand and turquoise waters.

The city centre is home to more cultural and historical attractions; the City Museum and Art Gallery is free to enter, and features lots of exciting permanent exhibits covering the local area and other various changing collections. Thorn House and Garden, Crownhill Fort and the Gin Distillery all make great days out for history buffs.

Plymouth is incredibly family-friendly, and as well as the range of beaches and outdoor spaces, there are some more great child-friendly attractions that are worth a visit. The Marine Aquarium is the largest in the UK, and gently introduces the topic of marine conservation. The ice rink, Pitch 'n' Putt and Pennywell Farm are also all designed with the younger family members in mind.

With a wealth of exciting attractions, beautiful coastline and friendly locals, Plymouth is the ideal destination to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
