Visit to the Royal William Yard

We love showing the students how beautiful our city really is. Plymouth is currently experiencing some lovely warm weather after a bit of a damp end of the summer, so we decided to make a good use out of it :) 

Usually on the first day we take our students to the Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican for their welcome tour, show off  the historical sights and the beauty of Sutton Harbour. Afterwards we briefly walk through the Plymouth City Centre, so that they know where to get all their essentials from. What we often do miss out is the stunning Royal William Yard! This area  is bursting with stunning architectural sights and breath taking views across the Plymouth Sound and River Tamar. We thought those were good enough reasons to visit and therefore invited our students for a little walk and a coffee stop. 

We all met in the Almond's office at City Business Park and took a brisk walk to the nearby bus stop in Stoke Village, to catch the number 34 bus :) After only a few minutes atop of a double-decker we could see the glistening waters of River Tamar and soon after the magnificent Royal William Yard 's entrance gate.

We had a fantastic time walking around, exploring the area and learning its history. Climbing up the famous Coastal Path Staircase comes highly recommended, the views are spectacular and it's an absolutely perfect spot for a picnic. To end our day, we watched the sun slowly sink under the horizon as we sat outside of Seco Lounge with a delicious cappuccino in hand.  We will definitely be back soon and more regularly :)
