Plymouth Marine Laboratory’s Location

We are located on The Hoe, Plymouth, close to the seafront and spectacular Plymouth Sound and also a short walk from the historic Barbican, Royal William Yard and the city centre.

Plymouth also benefits from being close to the Dartmoor National Park and to the beaches of the north and south Devon and Cornwall coasts.
