    Keith Tapscott's is in Plymouth he should spot your post, I'm not sure who else lives there. Welcome to APUG BTW.

    You can get film in Plymouth but it'll depend on what you want & the format. I'm sure you could either pre-order if needed or get some sent to where you're staying. It's not a huge city and UK towns/cities have much more defined centers than US equivalents.

    A trip out onto Darmoor is well worth a day away from the city :D

    You're going to an interesting part of England, while I've been across Dartmoor a few times I've not made any images there yrt. You need to be prepared to do some walking, there's excellent maps available in the UK, and spend whole days out in the landscape.

    London Camera Exchange at Frankfort Gate sell Ilford B&W films, papers and chemistry, but is limited to FP4 Plus and HP5 Plus. They also sell Fuji colour films.
    Spectrum are the local pro-lab, I think they do colour and C-41 B&W films, but not regular B&W. They also do E-6 colour reversal films.
    As for photo-locations, look around the city centre along with Plymouth Hoe and Sutton Harbour etc.

    Unless there is a good reason to go to London, I would personally spend the time exploring a wider area nearer to Plymouth. However, if you do go to London, visit Aperture near the British Museum. A combined vintage camera store and café.
