Plymouth England

From the days of the Pilgrim Fathers, Plymouth England has captured a place in people’s hearts. For 400 years it has been talked about as the ‘City of Discovery’, the place where the Mayflower finally departed for ‘the New World’. It’s not surprising then that the first pilgrim settlement in North America was called the Colony of New Plymouth. Today, Plymouth, Massachusetts is still referred to as ‘America’s Hometown’.

Plymouth England is now known as ‘Britain’s Ocean City’. It has a rich history and heritage as a centre of commercial shipping and is known for the submarines and yachts that are built in its harbour. The city also has a huge naval base and a world-class aquarium. Plymouth is also a bustling university town and business hub with an active Chamber of Commerce.

Plymouth is also a creative hub, with a number of publications promoting the city. These include The Plymouth Chronicle and Profile, the official publication of the Devon and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce. Published by Cornerstone Vision, they promote Plymouth England as an ideal tourist destination and place to live. Cornerstone is a long-standing business in the Plymouth area that is committed to building connections between the people of the city and helping to grow the local economy.

Visit Plymouth England

Plymouth England is most certainly well worth a visit and there are many places to stay for the tourist from grand old hotels to B&Bs throughout the city. Plymouth is a city that has something for everybody. You may consider a boat trip across the bay and along the River Tamar. Or visit our museums and art galleries. The city also have excellent shopping facilities, including Drake Circus.

The Tamar is the river dividing Devon and Cornwall and Plymouth is very much part of Devon. Although the only real difference between us is the way they serve their cream teas. In Plymouth, people generally spread the cream first followed by jam, while the Cornish tradition is to spread the jam first with a dollop of cream… Either way, it’s the same delicious clotted cream!

Together, Devon and Cornwall form the major part of the South West of England, which is where you will find the city on a map, about four hours drive from London. Plymouth Argyle Football Club are the city’s local sporting heroes although the city embraces many different sports including water sports!

It depends who you ask what Plymouth is famous for. If you ask a local person, they will probably tell you it should be for our terrific community spirit. This stems back as far as World War 11 when Plymouth was one of the most bombed cities. Today Plymouth England remains one of Britain’s largest seaports, with some extraordinary seaside views.

You will love The Barbican with its boats and cobbled streets; the Plymouth Hoe with its iconic lighthouse and legendary association with the Spanish Armada. Not to forget the Plymouth Sound; Royal Citadel; Devonport; the Royal William Yard; and exquisite Tamar Bridge. See Visit Plymouth for more information.

Plymouth England is still a city of discovery just waiting to be found. It may be one of the UK’s best-kept secrets, but not to the team at Cornerstone Vision. For over 20 years they have been at the heart of the city’s development through their publishing ventures. Today the company is recognised as a one-stop resource in the city for newspaper and magazine advertising, leaflet distribution, publishing, design and print.

The Plymouth Chronicle is an excellent ambassador for the city of Plymouth England while also updating readers with local news and connecting advertisers to get results. They are a helpful contact on the ground if you have any questions about Plymouth or ways to increase business in the city.
