The City of Plymouth has a population of just over 260,000 according to the 2011 census ranking it 55th in the UK, the second largest on the South Coast after Brighton and Hove ,42nd, and before Southampton ,64th.

The University of Plymouth has flourished over the years and now enjoys a ranking of the 16th largest university in the country, much larger than its near neighbours Exeter 44th and Falmouth 130th.

This site on North Road East is probably the closest you can get to an “on campus” facility and offers we believe a fabulous investment opportunity servicing a thriving modern educational establishment.

Both the Main line railway and Bus station are within approximately 10mins walk as is the vibrant Plymouth City Centre. The world famous Plymouth Hoe overlooking Plymouth Sound, Drakes Island and Barbican areas are within a 15-20 minutes’ stroll.

A former professional office and car park nestling quietly behind a large wall.
