Local Area


Located some three and a half hours from London, Plymouth lies between the mouths of the river Plym to the east and Tamar to the West where they flow into the natural harbour of Plymouth Sound. Plymouth Sound is protected by the Breakwater and within it can be found Drake's Island.

Protected by the Breakwater and the Sutton Harbour Lock Gates you'll discover the three marinas that make up Sutton Harbour – Sutton Harbour Marina, Guys Quay Marina and West Pier Marina. Found at the heart of historic Plymouth, just a stone's throw from thriving cafes, restaurants and bars, and a short stroll from Plymouth Hoe and the city centre.

The city centre, a mere five minute walk from the marinas, has undergone much redevelopment of late and is home to Drake Circus Shopping Centre, The Theatre Royal and Plymouth Pavillions.

Sutton Harbour Marina is easily accessible from the A38 Dual Carriageway or Plymouth Railway and Bus Stations. Please visit our how to get here page for further details.
