Christmas in Plymouth 2021

Christmas always seems to arrive way too quickly, and usually by the time we have even thought of what we would like to do it has already passed. However, this year there are so many amazing events going on around Plymouth that we simply wouldnโ€™t want you (or us) to miss out on. To make sure this year is different, we have put the best of Christmas in Plymouth in one place!
