Taking its name from scientist Otto Overbeck, who lived here between 1928 and 1937, this elegant Edwardian house is now a museum containing Overbeck's eclectic collections of shells, photographs, drawings, model boats, toys, curios, and displays on local maritime history and wildlife. There is a secret room just for children, with dolls, tin soldiers, and other toys, plus a ghost hunt. Outside you'll find a lovely subtropical garden with many rare plants, trees and shrubs. There are spectacular views over the estuary creeks and beaches to Salcombe, which looks quite picturesque in the distance. The garden is not wheelchair accessible, but the ground floor of the museum, shop, and tea-room, are. Braille guides for the museum are available, as well as a Braille ghost hunt.

Barbican Leisure Park

Barbican Leisure Park has something for everyone. The whole family will enjoy their countless offerings. For the kids, be sure to check out Tenpin bowling lanes. Couples like to dine at one of the restaurants such as Old Orleans, Frankie & Benny's, or Nando's Chicken Restaurant. For outings with friends, be sure to catch the latest flick at Vue Cinemas or stop at one of Oceana's bars and nightclubs. Whether in Plymouth for business or pleasure, a stop at the Barbican should be on your itinerary.

Theatre Royal

This modern theater is one of the best in Britain, producing large mainstream events with performers such as the Royal Shakespeare Company, Glyndebourne Touring Opera, Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Rambert Dance Company. The theater has a good education department and also the Young Company, which gives theater training to youngsters. The large, attractive building on Royal Parade is a popular meeting place for shoppers as well as theater buffs, as the huge windows of its excellent restaurant and cafe look out over the city.


One of the least altered medieval houses in England, Cotehele was owned by the Edgcumbe family for 600 years. They moved on to Mount Edgcumbe House in Tudor times, using Cotehele for family getaways and to show off to visitors, who marveled at this medieval gem, just as we do today. The ancient granite walls house a fine collection of textiles, tapestries and early oak furniture, while the chapel contains the oldest working domestic clock in England. Warning - Cotehele weaves a magic spell, so that once you've been there you want to go back again and again. The open times of the house and the restaurant vary greatly every week.

Plymouth Pavilions

This large venue is a very versatile event hall, capable of hosting many different sorts of activities. International sporting events, particularly snooker and basketball, are held here and there are also facilities for orchestral concerts, pop and rock music and light entertainment, with a concert hall holding up to 3,000 people. There is also a skating rink and leisure pool on the same site.

Morwellham Quay

The former river port of Morwellham Quay is a prominent tourist attraction of the Dartmoor National Park today. Home to the famous Tavistock Canal, this one-stop destination packs in an array of fun recreational opportunities. Travel several meters underground into the dripping old copper mine, learn the ropes on board the restored sailing ship, Garlandstone, take a carriage ride drawn by magnificent Shire horses or enjoy games from the Victorian era. An open-air museum offers you a glimpse of a restored 19th-century village. Given its stellar location in the heart of Tamar Valley, one can take in unmatched views of an azure riverfront and rendezvous with rare wildlife and birdlife.
