About the Yard

Constructed between 1825 and 1831, Royal William Yard is steeped in history and considered to be one of the most important groups of historic military buildings in Britain and the largest collection of Grade I Listed military buildings in Europe.

Superbly located between the River Tamar and Plymouth Sound, Royal William Yard provides breath-taking views and a great place to live or base your business. 

It boasts an array of both local and more widely known eating and drinking experiences including Bistrot Pierre, Wildwood, Wagamamas, Las Iguanas, Seco Lounge, Le Vignoble and Prezzo.

There's a wealth of great events and places to explore - like our award-winning Good Food Market, regular Yard music sessions, Wimbledon on the green and Weekend of Wonders. 

From yoga on the lawn, to boot camps and running groups, come and experience a wide range of fitness classes. Alternatively take a stroll along the famous South West Coast Path and descend the stunning steps from Devils Point into the Yard. There is an on-site marina offering berthing and a regular ferry service as well stand up paddle boarding which launches from Firestone Arches.
