Located in the county of Devon, the city of Plymouth is located between the mouths of two rivers and is widely regarded as one of the world's most impressive natural harbours. In 1588, the English Navy, which was led in part by Sir Francis Drake, set sail from Plymouth to defeat the Spanish Armada. Plymouth is by turns rugged and hilly, or green and rolling. Nearby Dartmoor was designated a National Park in 1951. Popular sites include Smeatons Tower a lighthouse re-sited on the Hoe, Mount Batten Peninsula, the National Marine Aquarium, and Buckland Abbey, which was Drake's former home.
The Royal Dockyard was built in the area, on the banks of the River Tamar, in 1690. It was in 1620 that the Pilgrim Fathers finally left Plymouth after repairs on their escape from religious persecution to the New World, eventually setting up Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts.
Plymouth is quite a small city and the waterfront area, the Barbican and the Hoe, are within walking range from the centre of the city. Water taxis are available, normally during the summer months, to take visitors to various destinations around the waterside part of the city. The rest of the city is well covered by local bus services.
