Elizabethan House Review

In the heart of the Barbican section, this former sea captain's home offers a fascinating insight into how well-to-do Plymothians lived during the city's golden age. The three floors of the timber-frame house are filled with 16th- and 17th-century furnishings, and there's a reconstructed kitchen and a spiral staircase built around a ship's mast.
