The City of Plymouth

Plymouth (pop. 250,000) is located on the south coast of Devon, England, about 190 miles (310 km) southwest of London. The area has been settled since the Bronze Age and is first mentioned in records in the eleventh century. Plymouth has one of the best natural ports in the world, and therefore maritime trade and national defense have been the center of its economy. Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city and has a wealth of attractions and activities, including historic sites and gardens, entertainment venues, leisure on the coast and in the countryside. Plymouth has a huge range of areas of natural beauty to enjoy: 23 County Wildlife Sites, eight Local Nature Reserves, and 26 Parks. Dartmoor National Park and Plymouth’s European Marine Site have been designated as areas of outstanding beauty.
