Plymouth is the largest city on the far South West peninsular, home to 260,000 people, an international ferry port, the 9th largest university in the UK and the largest operational naval base in Western Europe.
Plymouth is a city with a rich ocean heritage from shipbuilding and the Royal Navy to fishing and tourism and has played a role in key events from world history such as Sir Francis Drake’s defeat of the Spanish Armada and the departure point for the Mayflower Pilgrims’ journey to the New World.
This last event, the sailing of the Mayflower, marks its 400 year anniversary in 2020 and Plymouth’s Coastal Community Team is working alongside Plymouth City Council, Destination Plymouth, Plymouth Waterfront Partnership and Plymouth City Centre Company to deliver a series of projects to maximise the opportunity this unique moment provides.
The Coastal Community Team will work to identify and deliver projects along the city’s waterfront that will capitalise on the Mayflower 400 celebrations and provide transformative impacts on Plymouth’s economy and communities.
