Just a short walk away from The Millfields lies the historic Royal William Yard, another formal Royal Navy installation - nowadays a thriving metropolis of bars, restaurants, shops and galleries, combining sympathetically restored architecture with a modern, vibrant atmosphere. Also within walking distance are the Cremyll ferry dock, the Theatre Royal and Plymouth's Drake Circus shopping centre.
Along the coastline to the east lies The Hoe, offering stunning views of Plymouth Sound and showcasing one of southwest England's most famous landmarks - Smeaton's Tower. Further, beyond The Hoe, lie the cobbled streets of the Barbican, affording immersive insights into Plymouth's rich and varied history.
Retaining almost all of its original 18th Century character and charm, The Millfields is a fine example of modern, classic living, The impeccably maintained gardens and landscaping, the original stone perimeter wall and of course, the stunning, original architecture are brought up to date with modern upgrades and sensibility, including the 24-hour manned security presence.
