Devon Life - - Plymouth -

Do­ing it for the girls: In 1919, Nancy As­tor be­came the first woman Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment, rep­re­sent­ing the con­stituency of Sut­ton in Ply­mouth.

To drink: To sam­ple a de­cent beer and a slice of lo­cal life, head to The Dol­phin Ho­tel on The Bar­bican and The Min­erva Inn (Ply­mouth’s old­est pub) in Looe Street. For a de­cent cof­fee, Ebring­ton Street is your best bet. Try the Prime Café or Good Cof­fee.

To visit: The aquar­ium is great on a cold, Jan­uary day, as is the Ply­mouth Gin Dis­tillery. The gallery at Ply­mouth Col­lege of Art is al­ways worth a visit. And for an iconic view from an iconic place, climb the 72-feet high Smeaton’s Tower.
