About Plymouth

Situated on the south coast of England, in the county of Devon, Plymouth’s population of some 264,000 people make it one of the largest cities in the region.

Plymouth has played an important role in shipping and naval activities for many centuries. It was here that the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from in 1620, heading to America aboard the Mayflower. The Mayflower Steps mark the very spot the vessel set sail, with the English settlers on board who established the Plymouth Colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The same spot is also home to one of the largest natural harbours in the world – Plymouth Sound This deep, wide harbour is widely considered to be one of the world’s most picturesque harbour spots. Since the 16th century it has been used as a strategic naval base – today it is used for fishing, sailing and recreational boating.

Plymouth remains a popular tourist destination, thanks to its stunning coastline, historic landmarks and excellent variety of attractions. Equally, people are increasingly drawn to the area for these very reasons and for the outdoor lifestyle on offer. It helps of course that you’ll get far more for your money here than in other cities such as London or Manchester, especially if you look at shared ownership homes near Plymouth

Where you visit Plymouth very much depends on your lifestyle and budget. If you long to be amongst the hustle and bustle, the historic Barbican area, with its cobbled streets, independent shops and vibrant nightlife is a good choice that also offers waterfront views.

Families tend to head towards Plymstock, a suburban area with great transport links and plenty of green spaces. Similarly, Mannamead is another leafy suburb within striking distance of the city centre.

Young professionals will feel at home in Mutley. Picturesque views with an easy commute into the city make it a great choice, but it’s not short on nightlife.
