Plymouth is a port city situated on the south coast of Devon, England, approximately 310 km west-south-west of London.
In 1620, the Pilgrim Fathers departed from Plimouth, aboard the Mayflower ship, towards what is now the United States of America. During the Second World War, Plymouth was heavily bombed by the Luftwaffe, in a series of 59 raids known as the Plymouth Blitz. In June 1944, Plymouth was an important embarkation point for allied troops for D-Day.
Plymouth has about 260 thousand inhabitants, making it the second largest city in the South West, after Bristol.
