If you’re into anything maritime related, then Plymouth should be your first port of call. Steeped in the rich – and regularly questionable – history of the British Empire, the Ocean City has been the starting point for many an adventure. From the pilgrim fathers leaving for the New World, to the expeditions to the far reaches of an empire on which the sun never set, there are plenty of places to stay in this popular Devon destination.

You can dine in the Great Hall or take your afternoon tea in the landscaped garden. If you haven’t been spoiled enough, there’s a spa, too.
