Cruises from Plymouth
Plymouth, a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions, is a city in Devon, England, about 310 km SW of London. Being home to nearly 250,000 people it is the second biggest city on the south coast. Plymouth grew as a major shipping port, handling imports and passengers from the Americas and the construction of battleships for the Royal Navy. This led to its targeting and partial destruction during the Plymouth Blitz of World War II, but after the war the city centre was completely rebuilt and today its naval base, HMNB Devonport, is the largest operational naval base in Western Europe.
