  • "Plymouth Roscoff on Britany Ferries"

    Fantastic ship and felt I was on a cruise rather than a crossing. I have used Brittany ferries on many occasion and really like the boats; well maintained, comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend Brittany ferries as their service is always above expectations.

  • "Excellent experience"

    I was fortunate enough to travel on the Port Aven recently and found the whole experience an absolute treat. The weather was pretty foul approaching England but the Port Aven is a big ferry and took it in her stride. I have often wondered, considering how short the turnaround time is, how the staff aboard manage to clean up and make it look like the ship has been washed down from top to bottom, all in an hour or less! The food was excellent quality and variety. I dined on great food and can recommend the restaurants to anyone needing replenishment. Again, they manage to knock out a fabulous meal with so little time, it's truly impressive. I can honestly recommend travel on this ferry. It was a superb crossing in all respects, even though the channel was pretty rough with wave splash covering the windows on the 9th level. Impressive.

  • "Plymouth - Roscoff"

    An excellent journey at a good price. Our cabin was very comfortable, the ferry had excellent facilities including a swimming pool!... unfortunately this was out of use as we had an overnight sailing. The food was overpriced so we didn't have a meal. Would definitely use this company again.

Plymouth Guide

The English city of Plymouth is located on the south coast of the county of Devon, in the south west of the Britain. It is around 300 km to the south west of London and is located between the mouths of the River Plym and the River Tamar, where they both join Plymouth Sound. The city's history is inextricably linked to the sea and in its time the city has been, or still is, a hub for shipbuilding and seafaring in general. It is also home to the largest operational naval base in Western Europe, Her Majesty's Naval Base Devonport.

The city's waterfront areas have many attractions for visitors to enjoy. The Barbican's cobbles quayside are definitely worth strolling through where visitors can follow in the Pilgrim father's footsteps. Alternatively, the National Marine Aquarium with its deep water fish tanks is also worth a visit. Then there is the Blackfriars Gin Distillery, where Plymouth's finest export can be tasted or simply take a boat trip around Plymouth Sound from Mayflower Steps.

Ferry services to Roscoff in France and Santander in Spain depart from the city's port. There is also a passenger service operating to the Cornish hamlet of Cremyll, which is believed to have been in operation since 1204.

Roscoff Guide
