It is a really cool, very large monument at the top of a hill in Plymouth. It doesn't take an enormous amount of time to see but it is definitely something to check out while in Plymouth

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
