There's nowhere quite like it

More than 50 towns and cities scattered across the world share its name but this Plymouth is the mother of them all.

Few cities can rival Plymouth's rich seafaring heritage, its stunning waterfront and natural harbour, its vibrant cultural life and its close proximity to some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.

In short there's nowhere quite like it. That's why Plymouth is Britain's Ocean City.

Plymouth's branding as Britain's Ocean City builds on the city's previous brands, including Spirit of Discovery, which captured the city's rich history of being the starting point of some of the great voyages of exploration, its role as an embarkation point for the settlement of new worlds, as well its reputation for innovation.

Plymouth is now increasingly known for excellence in education, being at the forefront of marine science and industry and for its exciting annual programme of events and cultural activities.

The city is now competing on a global stage and it needs to clearly communicate what it has to offer, both its unrivalled past and its exciting future.
