This weekend is Muster Weekend in Plymouth which celebrates Mayflower Week and brings UK, US and Dutch armed forces together and will feature amazing military displays, interactive demonstrations and a host of fun activities - further details to be advised as soon as they have been agreed.
It's not all about the armed forces though, there will be great food, sightseeing, shopping, nights out and lots of fun!
Plymouth is home to The Barbican, which is a beautiful old port, full of narrow cobbled streets, Elizabethan warehouses, specialist shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants, and it also has great night life!
There will be the opportunity to catch the ferry across to Mount Edgecumbe. A 10 minute ferry trip sees you in Cornwall, where you can walk around the grounds or visit the house and gardens.
And no trip to Plymouth is complete without a trip to the Hoe, with unbeatable views across Plymouth Souhd, it's the perfect place to spend a sunny day. It is here where Sir Francis Drake, intrepid explorer and local hero, is immortalised in a statue, situated just a few metres from the green where he finished his game of bowls before heading out to defeat the Spanish Armada in 1588.
Other options will include visiting the Mayflower Steps where the Pilgrim Fathers set off for the New World in 1620 or a visit to the Aquarium
All activities are optional, but it will be a great fun way to spend a weekend sightseeing and meeting new friends!
