Although it’s the capital of South West England and the largest city on the south coast, Plymouth is surprisingly peaceful and relaxed. It was awarded 'Britain's Cleanest City' in 1991, and national studies have led to conclusions that it is the best place in England to live. Plymouth has been a maritime city since its earliest days due to its position between the estuaries of the Rivers Plym and Tamar. It was the base of the great Elizabethan sea captains Drake and Raleigh. The Royal Navy has had a permanent base in Plymouth since the end of the 17th century. There are excellent views from the Hoe ("high place") from which Drake first spotted the approach of the Spanish Armada whilst enjoying a game of bowls.

The Box is Plymouth’s new £46 million cultural destination, proudly led by Plymouth City Council in Britain's Ocean City.
A museum, gallery and archive. A cafe, shop and bar. A place that you can make your own, and where there's always something new to discover.
The opening of The Box was one of the most significant cultural events in the UK in 2020. Plymouth's former Museum and Art Gallery, Central Library, and St Luke's church buildings have been completely transformed with a series of new galleries and exhibition spaces. The Box also features a striking elevated ‘archive in the sky’ with research and learning facilities, food, drink and retail spaces. It's also created a major new public square for performances, events and artistic responses.
