Pocket Guide: Plymouth Charles Church Hotels

One of the many delights of having a holiday in Devon is that you get to see some really great towns and cities, packed with cultural and historic treasures. The rugged coastline is never very far away either, and the countryside holds many natural attractions of its own. In a great city like Plymouth you'd expect to find a lot of heritage, and Charles Church is a particularly impressive one. Based at a hotel in Plymouth, or a B&B or guesthouse anywhere in this part of Devon, you should pay this fine old church a visit.

Visit Charles Church from Devon Hotels

Charles Church was founded in the early 17th Century and is Plymouth's second oldest parish church after St. Andrew's, the mother church of the city. It has been an important part of the devotional life of the area for three centuries now and is still an important part of the town. It has in its own turn become the 'mother church' of many other Devon churches down the years, and since its founding has played an active part in the spiritual life of the community. Unfortunately, like Coventry Cathedral farther north, Charles Church was demolished by incendiary bombs in 1941 and as a result the actual services that used to be held here now take place in nearby St. Matthias.

Devon Hotels and Guesthouses for Charles Church

Charles Church is still one of Plymouth's most important landmarks and its shell has been preserved as a tribute not only to the old church itself but to the defiant spirit of the Plymouth people during the dark years of World War Two. The decision was made not to rebuild it after the war also partly because the population by then was no longer concentrated in the centre of Plymouth but in the suburbs. As over 1,000 civilians had died in the air raids it became instead a permanent memorial to them, and in 1958 it was dedicated as such. It's a most moving building to see today and on any trip into Plymouth from a Devon hotel or B&B you could easily pop along to pay your respects.
