Location

Plymouth is a town on the south coast of England with a long history as a port and shipbuilding city, currently home to the largest naval base in Western Europe. Entertainment in the city center includes many clubs, pubs, restaurants and theaters, and the city’s coastal location makes it very popular for water sports, including summer surfing and boating.

Fun Facts
  • In 1973, the local football team of the town, Plymouth Argyle, played a friendly match against the Brazilian side Santos FC, one of the best clubs in the world at the time. Their line-up featured a world-famous player, Pelé. And given the Superstar's penalty, it was surprising that Plymouth Argyle won!
  • Although it is now closed and in a state of disrepair, the historic New Palace Theater has a prestigious past. Over the years, she has seen acts such as Laurel and Hardy, and Charlie Chaplin performing on stage. A coup for a city outside of London and Manchester!
