Newnham Park

Newnham Park, Plymouth, Devon, PL7 5BN

This large green field site is just 20 minutes from the centre of Plymouth, 45 minutes from Exeter and 5 minutes from the A38, with access into Cornwall. 

The city of Plymouth is bursting with culture and history, is right next to the sea and has plenty of quality local food and drink. Time Out Magazine rank it the seventh most underrated place to visit in the world, alongside the likes of Cuenca in Ecuador, Turku in Finland and Mongolia.

If you’re an art lover, check out The Box: a brilliant, recently opened gallery that celebrates local artists. If you’re an architecture buff, wander around by the newly done-up Market Hall, which also has its own ‘immersive art dome’. For travellers who like to stay active, few pools are more spectacular than the Tinside Lido. And for a drink as the sun goes down? England’s oldest distillery is smack bang in the historic city centre. 

The British Firework Championships, take place on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 August 2024 on Plymouth Hoe, is a must-see event, showcasing the incredible talent and artistry of six top pyrotechnic companies as the evening turns dark.
