The City of Plymouth
On The Map: Plymouth is located on the southern coast of the Southwest Peninsula of England.
Plymouth is known as Britain’s Ocean City, and is one of Europe’s most vibrant waterfront cities. The town boasts a beautiful waterfront and harbour, and a rich, varied history. Evidence of Bronze Age activity has been found in Plymouth, followed by a Roman Settlement. Plymouth eventually became an important port and merchant trading town. In 1620, it was from Plymouth that the Pilgrim Fathers travelled across the Atlantic to the New World. They founded the Plymouth Colony, only the second English settlement, in what was to become the United States of America. Plymouth Hoe (The Hoe) is a large public open space, where Sir Francis Drake reputedly played his last game of bowls before engaging with the Spanish Armada in 1588. The Hoe is also home to the iconic red & white Smeaton’s Tower Lighthouse, Tinside Lido and Royal Citadel. Royal William Yard, constructed between 1825 and 1831 is considered to be one of the most important groups of historic military buildings in Britain. If you like to shop, you’ll be happy in Plymouth!
