Plymouth is located in South West England and is considered the gateway to the picturesque coastlines of Devon and Cornwall.

The city has a deep rooted maritime history and a thriving waterfront community of marinas, fine dining restaurants, pubs, and cafés overlooking the water. Plymouth is the largest city on the English south coast with plenty to see and do from its historical architecture, museums, art galleries and theatres to concerts in the Plymouth Pavilions.

Plymouth is about a four hour car drive from London. Rapide coaches leave regularly from London Victoria Coach Station and take around four and a half hours whilst the train from London Paddington on First Great Western is just three and a half hours. There are also direct train services from The Midlands, the North of England, Scotland and South Wales. Brittany Ferries operate regular ferry services from Roscoff in Brittany and Santander in northern Spain.
