The Waterfront Business Improvement District (BID) has been in operation since April 2012 and is delivered through Plymouth Waterfront Partnership Ltd (PWP), a not-for-profit PLC.

The BID represents more than 900 businesses across four square miles of the Plymouth Waterfront area. Businesses include accommodation providers, attractions, licensed premises, marinas, professional service providers and retailers, currently paying a 1.58% Levy based on their rateable value.


Plymouth Waterfront businesses voted in favour to renew the BID for a further five years of the Business Improvement District in March 2017 and the BID will operate until the end of March 2022. Our projects outlined in the Business Plan for Waterfront BID2 are: Attract More Visitors; Create Attractive Places; Reduce Business Costs.

PWP works in close partnership with the Plymouth City Centre Company BID, Destination Plymouth and Plymouth City Council.

Plymouth is Britain's Ocean City, a lively and authentic waterfront community with a distinct European feel created by the many marinas, restaurants, alfresco pavement cafes and waterfront bars, historic buildings and strong modernist architecture that lines Armada Way, the city's central boulevard.

Plymouth boasts fantastic attractions. From the largest aquarium in the UK to galleries, parks and historic houses there is plenty to fascinate you from dawn till dusk.


The Barbican and Sutton Harbour are home to a number of attractions. Visit the National Marine Aquarium and be amazed by its underwater world.  It has over 70 sharks from more than ten different species.


At Plymouth Gin visitors can tour the distillery to see how their unique smooth Gin is made, visit their cocktail bar and eat in the award winning restaurant.


There's a variety of water sports and other activities to enjoy at the Mount Batten Centre.

The Royal William Yard hosts a wide range of restaurants, artists and events, including regular food markets.
