Located at the western end of the elegant Regency terraces on Plymouth's world famous Hoe and commanding a prominent position, The Grand is a Grade II listed building overlooking Plymouth Sound, one of the world's great natural harbours.
Smeaton's Tower, the iconic and historical red and white lighthouse, stands proud and tall just metres away, instantly recognisable and overlooking the cobbled streets of the Barbican and its waterfront.
Fast becoming one of Europe's top waterfront cities, Plymouth is enriched by its extensive maritime heritage and lively cultural scene. A plethora of shops, bars and restaurants are on offer, creating a vibrant cosmopolitan feel.
The city boasts the region's largest shopping mall, Drake's Circus, and the established Theatre Royal offers some of the country's leading productions. Also boasting the UK's largest aquarium, housing exotic fish, turtles and even sharks, there is certainly no shortage of things to see and do.
For those wanting to explore outside of the city, Plymouth's idyllic location on the border between Devon and Cornwall, means sandy beaches and rolling hills are all well within reach. And with more than 350km of coastline and over 400 beaches just crying out to be explored, it is no wonder that these two counties are the most popular in the UK.
