Our City By The Sea; May Your Stay Be Full Of Everything You Love…


Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions for everyone. No matter what your age or interest, Plymouth truly does have something for everyone. Whether you have chosen Plymouth for a family break, a romantic retreat, a business trip or weekend destination – the New Continental Hotel and Plymouth is the perfect destination choice.

We think Plymouth is the most exciting city with sensational restaurants that are internationally renowned, fabulously charming bars, a wonderful free museum and too many iconic sights to mention!   

Plymouth is a clean, safe and welcoming city,  the perfect location for your leisure break.  Although heavily hit in the Blitz, Plymouth still has wonders and gems that date back to sensational years gone by, with its new build post-war, said to be beautiful and heroic according to Kevin McCloud, the designer and presenter of the television programme Grand Designs.

And if the Great British Weather is really inclement there are plenty of indoor play centres, multiplex cinema’s and ten-pin bowling at the Barbican Leisure Park – all guaranteed to keep you and the children amused! 

With two pioneering  theatres, an entertainment complex, two casinos, bars and restaurants and a good shopping centre are all in easy walking distance to The New Continental making it the perfect hotel to stay for a short break. Step out onto the street, turn right and enjoy a walk by the sea. Stroll past Tinside Lido and along the promenade to Plymouth’s famous Hoe, then carry on towards to the historic Barbican. Your walk will be rewarded with cobbled narrow streets, Tudor buildings, a working harbour and marinas to explore. Or simply stop, with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, sit, relax and soak up Plymouth’s special atmosphere.

Whether your leisure choice is  out on the water or being entertained at leading and pioneering venues, enjoying art and culture, learning about history and British heritage, visiting the aquarium or the Tinside Lido, walking the 
quaint cobbled quayside or sampling Plymouth Gin…Plymouth has it all 
and more, in abundance! Here is a list of local attractions and things to do, all within walking distance for the hotel:
