Aside from the Chavs, Crack heads and alcoholics you can look forward to meeting stuck up Boots employees, elderly women that look like death walking due to the fumes being pumped from every corner of the city and pollution that hits you as soon as you take a deep breath.
The flower sales man outside of TK maxx shouting "Come on" every three seconds will try to scam you, and tramps will swear at you for saying "sorry mate" when being asked for change. Teenage yobbos, fat taxi drivers, middle aged single men and unattractive slags make up the night life with packs of asian men always on hand to slime their way into your/ your girlfriends underwear.
Steer clear of places like North prospect, Swilly and stonehouse due to the council estates overflowing with drug dealers, benefit spongers and skanks.
The job centre is under staffed and overcrowded. Gapped toothed job seekers fill the rooms to the brim
The local hotels treat there staff like shite, the food sold out of vans would kill you if you were to eat it for a week and the rubbish on the streets could fill new Zealand... twice
The rent you pay on a house could buy you a mansion elsewhere, wages are minimal and work goes unappreciated.
Overall, one of the worst places in the world to live.
Plymouth is a load of shite
Following intense bombing in WWII, the city centre was rebuilt by stoned and drug addicted urban planners who had a fetish for ugly concrete buildings. Most of the city centre and Union Street is now inhabited by total wankers who seem to like the disgusting surroundings.
Plymouth is also where the Pilgrims left from before heading to that nasty place called America.
Person not from Plymouth: Are you speaking English?
The PT Cruiser was designed as a Plymouth.
I am from Plymouth
Parts of Plymouth like North Prospect, Devonport and stonehouse are despicable, they are full of idiots and drunks. These are small areas so you rarely see them. Places like the Barbican and Hoe have beautiful scenery and beautiful features. Generally the locals around Plymouth are friendly.
The air is clean compared to London.
People in plymouth are not actually chavs that wear Burberry. Most people in Plymouth are of the working class.
We have a naval port and a university. There are lots of students around Plymouth.
People are generally happy to help if you ask politely.
Overall Plymouth is actually a lovely place to live!
Home to a Naval Base, whose residents dominate the local nightlife, harbouring intense a dislike for the resident student population (who have a poor relationship with the locals, too).
Is never as nice as anticipated once you arrive, and is probably the roughest part of the Westcountry, but could certainly be a lot worse. At least it's not Liverpool or Manchester, hey? Every Plymouthian tends to get decked out in Burberry clothing items for their 13th birthday, not taking them off again for years. Definitely a city of great contrasts.
