Sutton Harbour Marina is located within the historic harbour renowned for its cobbled streets and quaint architecture
Sutton Harbour is the historic heart of Plymouth, with some of the oldest buildings in Britain’s Ocean City alongside exciting new developments created as part of harbour’s widespread regeneration.
Perfectly positioned between the bustling city centre and the sea, Sutton Harbour and the adjacent Barbican quarter form the historic centrepiece of the city and enjoy a strong heritage of maritime adventure.
Cobbled streets line the harbourside and are awash with maritime history and more than 200 listed buildings, from the Mayflower Steps at the entrance to Sutton Harbour from which the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World in 1620 to the world-famous Plymouth Gin Distillery, housed in a former monastery dating back to the 15th century.
Come rain or shine, there is always something happening in this bustling, dynamic waterfront city.
World-class events are frequently hosted in Plymouth and with its rich maritime history, the city attracts a wide range of water-based events, many hosted in the harbour, from tall ship visits to sailing rallies.

LOCK ACCESS RESTRICTIONS DURING ESSENTIAL LOCK GATES WORK
The first phase of a major repair and refurbishment project on the lock gates in Sutton Harbour is taking place from September to December this year. The second phase will take place from March to June 2024.
During these essential works there will be times of restricted access through the lock which means that the normal freeflow timetable does not apply.

Please also note that the Duty Lock Keeper will also broadcast on VHF CH 12, on the hour from 07.00 to 19.00 daily during the works, updating access times. Vessels are advised to listen to these broadcasts for the most accurate passage times through the lock.
Lock Freeflow Times
There is a free flow period of up to three hours either side of high tide.
