Plymouth - Britain's Ocean City
With a rich maritime heritage and a hand in some of Britain’s most famous events, a city as steeped in history as Plymouth has many stories to tell.
It is Britain’s Ocean City, a lively and authentic waterfront community with a distinctly European feel created by the many marinas, restaurants, alfresco pavement cafés and waterfront bars, historic buildings and the strong modernist architecture that lines Armada Way, the city’s central boulevard.
A city with the sea at its heart, the major shopping centre is just ten minute’s walk from the waterfront.
The dazzling natural waterfront makes Plymouth distinctive. Nestling between the sea and rivers on three sides, the dramatic wild expanse of Dartmoor on the fourth, and a heritage that holds a powerful place in English and world maritime history, you won’t find a better mix of town, coast and country.
In addition to its impressive natural setting, Plymouth is the cultural capital of Devon and Cornwall - with major events including the annual British Firework Championships and Flavour Fest, theatres, galleries and performing arts providing an eclectic cultural experience to add to the laid-back lifestyle.
