We walked here and loved every minute. An old military base now used for restaurants and drinks. Full of history

Fantastic place we have been here for 3 weeks and really enjoyed it. The only downside are the massive parking fees. It has cost us £210 just to park! So just keep that in mind. Everything else...excellent

It's a good concept, new life breathed into an old building that oozes history. Combining apartments and commerce is always a good thing in my opinion. That major flaw is the parking. Nice weather, an event on or most of the time the parking there...More

Plenty of places to eat & drink in a quiet sanctuary but so close to the city. Ferry across the water back into Cornwall or around to the Barbican

For such a lovely setting at RWY, the lack of parking places will put many off from dining or visiting here. The roads by the parking places are also very narrow and the additional failure of the authorities to install one-way systems creates bottle-neck jams...More

A standout piece of Plymouth, the Royal William Yard was previously a vitualling yard. It has many character building spaciously laid out with one character entrance.

When we fancy a short walk and a coffee.....any day of the week, we often pop to the RWY. At least it is easier to park now they have made more parking available. There are quite a few places to eat and have a drink,...More
