Royal William Yard Plymouth

 Today my children and I surprised my husband with a family lunch at the Royal William Yard.
 The Royal William yard was a Royal Navy victualling yard until it closed in 1992.
 It is also the largest collection of Grade One listed military buildings in Europe.
 The yard was named after King William IV.  It was built between 1826 and 1835.  
 It was designed by architect Sir John Rennie.
There is a ferry to the yard from the Barbican. £3.00 per person each way.  It is worth paying the fee to take the ferry for a special trip.
The yard and Devil Point is a great place to view ships entering the Plymouth sound and Devonport.
 If you are interested in military history, this is a great part of Plymouth to visit.
