Det skal I lave
We will meet you at Smeaton's Tower on the Hoe - itself an iconic landmark of the city - and after a brief introduction we will start our tour exploring the sights and memorials overlooking Plymouth Sound. Drake, Hawkins and Darwin are all important characters with a rich history in Plymouth but do you know where they sailed from? As we stroll towards the Citadel, be prepared for stories of servicemen and royalty in times of combat - from the English Civil War to Afghanistan - both at home and abroad. Venturing further back in time we will tread the cobblestones of New Street and learn how Elizabeth I influenced this area and how it was later saved from demolition by Nancy Astor and the Barbican Trust. You will be transported back 400 years to the time of the Pilgrims setting sail for the New World. Meet William Brewster who will there to greet you and regale stories of his life onboard the Mayflower and in the New World - America.
I am Jayne and my passion is for people, stories and the theatre. I am a people-person and love entertaining (and random acts of kindness.) After an amazing career teaching Drama and Theatre Studies to GCSE & A level I trained to be a tour guide. Combining my knowledge, expertise and passions has led me wanting to share this with people - hence the "Spirit of Exploration Tour". Adrian is a proud Cornishman: "I have a background in education, having been a teacher for 30 years. I am an experienced tourist guide for the Southwest of England. I enjoy meeting people to share with them my love for the Westcountry. I have a professional approach to everything that I do and treat everyone I meet with respect, compassion and kindness." Combining our skills we love to entertain, inspire, and create unique historical experiences to share.
Her skal du være
The Lighthouse is Smeaton's Tower. Preserved in memorial of John Smeaton it is an iconic landmark in Plymouth - even the Beatles have had their photo taken with it clearly in view! The Royal Citadel is a historic site and perhaps one of the best examples of an historic fort that is still used by the army today. We end the tour at the memorial to the Mayflower sailing from Plymouth: The Mayflower Steps.
