But today Royal William is Host to Fiona Bruce and gang.
BBC's ever popular Sunday evening programme Antiques Roadshow ...
If you want to pop in, clutching your pride-and-joy antiquities, you could catch Plymouth Citybus 34/34A from Royal Parade, the city centre stops.
Parking near The Royal William may not be easy, so First Bus are running a special service.
First Devon and Cornwall Park & Ride
The Park & Ride service will operate every 20 minutes throughout with first departure from the Milehouse Park & Ride site at 8am and last departure from the Royal William Yard (turning circle outside) at 6.58pm calling at the Railway Station stop on Saltash Road in each direction. Please click here to view the timetable.
And if your sense of the punctilious in public transport shivers at the 12 hour clock or wonders about a 20 minutes frequency that starts at 0800 and finished at 1858, you can always consult the full timetable by clicking on the link.
Fares will be £2 adult return (£1 for kids age 5-18 or NUS card holders of any age) A family ticket is £5 return (up to 2 adults plus 3 kids) and, as an added thrill, you can play "hunt the bus timetable" whilst waiting!
The link to the timetable later vanished; timetable secrecy rules OK?
