Devon City Features in New Coach-Trip Movie.


It’s a wrap!


Britain’s Ocean City is top of the bill for the UK travel and tourism industry.


Plymouth in Devon hosted the filming of a special group travel and coach party movie-short arranged by Destination Plymouth and featuring UK travel trade specialists Steve Reed Tourism Ltd. It’s primarily to showcase the city and its tourism businesses to the UK travel trade – attracting groups of visitors.

Shot by James Stoner Photography and Video during two gloriously sunny days at the popular seaside, port and city destination, the film will be used to highlight Plymouth’s many coach-friendly attractions, hotels and venues. Plymouth City Bus and the Crowne Plaza Hotel also supported the film shoot.


Just under a thousand UK coach and tour operators and group travel organisers will be sent a link for the movie to help them plan their tours to this wonderful part of Devon.


Amanda Lumley is the Executive Director of Destination Plymouth: 


‘Plymouth is an ideal location for groups and coaches!’


‘We have lots of group-friendly hotels, many fascinating attractions and a stunning waterfront that we know greatly appeals to groups of all types,’ says Amanda.


‘We also have a wonderful maritime heritage and a rich history - whether it’s the famous Mayflower Steps on the Barbican; the Smeaton’s Tower or the statue of Sir Francis Drake on Plymouth Hoe; or perhaps the world famous distillery at Plymouth Gin – there’s something for every visitor.’


Steve Reed Tourism are using the film to showcase Plymouth to their many tour-planner contacts around the country.


‘Visitors are always stunned by the sheer drama and amazing setting of Plymouth.’


‘The city surprises the visitor with its amazing hotels, attractions and cultural venues, we’re very happy to recommend it,’ says Steve Reed


‘When groups see top venues such as the National Marine Aquarium, The Box - Art Gallery, Museum and Archive and the breathtaking Royal William Yard for example, they’ll see that Plymouth has all of the necessary ingredients for a successful group tour.’
