Boasting perhaps the finest natural location of any city in the UK, Plymouth is defined by its colours and dynamic contrasts. Its dazzling natural waterfront and deep water harbour have provided a blue canvas for centuries of maritime and naval narrative, a proud global tradition dating back to Sir Francis Drake. Today, 'The Ocean City' is home to an unparalleled collection of world-renowned marine institutions, the National Marine Aquarium, the largest Naval Dockyard in Western Europe, a thriving fishing port, and some of the UK's finest beaches and sailing waters. Framed by the rivers Tamar and Plym, Plymouth is also a green city thanks to the rugged splendour of Dartmoor to the north, and the rolling hills, valleys and estuaries of the South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
