About Plymouth


Plymouth has a proud and distinguished naval history going back to the times of Sir Francis Drake and The Spanish Armada, and the city still has strong naval links today.

About Plymouth

Plymouth is known as Britain’s ‘Ocean City’, populated by over 260,000 people and based in the county of Devon in Southwest England. Famously, the city has a proud maritime heritage stretching back to the days of Sir Francis Drake and the Spanish Armada, but nowadays Plymouth gets a lot of attention as a go-to location in the southwest.

Business travellers coming to stay in Plymouth serviced apartments will find that, even though it is quite far west, standing on Devon’s border with Cornwall, Plymouth has great transport links. The A38 always runs a minimum of two lanes before joining the M5 at Exeter, while Plymouth train station, run by the Great Western Railway, is part of the intercity network with regular trains to London. A Brittany Ferries service also runs to Northern France and Spain.

The city is also popular with both students and travellers. For instance, over 25,000 people attend the Plymouth Universities and the city has several iconic attractions such as the Hoe and Smeaton’s Tower. There is also the popular Plymouth city centre Drake Circus which opened in 2006. It falls under the overall city centre regeneration plans which are set change the way Plymouth is navigated and utilised in decades to come.


Ranking amongst the top twenty best cities in the UK for start-up businesses, Plymouth ticks a lot of boxes when it comes to fulfilling the expectations of businesspeople. The Royal Navy and shipbuilding both still form a major part of the city’s economy, although in modern times there has been extensive growth in the service sector. The science and technology sectors are also well established though, with the Plymouth Science Park (home to approximately 70 businesses) representing one of largest business hubs in the South West.

New and existing businesses have a lot of facilities of which they can utilise in terms of supporting their own enterprises. Plymouth is of course actually at the heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership, which functions based on a vision to create a “dynamic, highly prosperous region with high living standards and an outstanding quality of life… raise productivity and ensure prosperity for all”. Local companies or those visiting the city, perhaps staying in Plymouth corporate accommodation, can bear the fruits of all the economic strategies and schemes that fall under the Partnership, meaning the chances of successful business execution is greater.

The city may struggle to appeal to those who strive to be near the capital, with Plymouth being around a four-hour drive away from London, but it does combine with the likes of Exeter to create a hub of business in the South West. There is also the Exeter International Airport around an hour away, whilst Plymouth railway station grants train passengers’ broad access to locations across the South West and beyond. Plymouth apartments, overall, provide a great way for relocators and visitors to have access to the range of business opportunities, economic qualities and strong transport links that the city possesses.


As you would expect, the history associated with Plymouth is one of maritime nature. First knowledge though of inhabitancy in the city stems back to the Saxon times. Small areas of land were occupied and developed along the River Plym, and it was these settlements that grew to become the hub of Plymouth life.  They were first named ‘Sudtone’ in the Domesday Book of 1086 before it became known as Sutton Harbour, the city’s original port, which still remains to this day.

It was a national centre for sea voyage, attracting the attention of a certain Sir Francis Drake. Not only was he the first Englishman to sail into the Pacific, but he was also responsible for defeating the Spanish Armada in 1588. Big names such as James Cook and Charles Darwin also sailed from Plymouth.

Growing popularity meant greater expansion and development. For instance, guests staying in Plymouth aparthotels can be within a minute's walk of the Hoe, a focal point of naval development and the home of the famous Smeaton’s Tower. By the 1800s, Plymouth Dock was renamed ‘Devonport’, in 1914 the towns of Plymouth, Devonport and Stonehouse united to become the Borough of Plymouth, and Plymouth was granted city status in 1928. 

The Second World War bombing was a heavy setback for the city, considering its rich history of growth. It was one of the cities to suffer most from the bombings, but thanks to an innovative, fresh strategy, the city was able to return to its former notoriety.


As well as taking pride in its waterfront, picturesque qualities, Plymouth also catches the eye with its popular shopping centre. Supermarkets, fast food, restaurants, banks, sports shops, you name it, the Drake Circus has it. Everything that Drake Circus offers is also within easy walking distance of the Sutton Harbour, the Plymouth Pavilions, the Merchant House Museum and the Barbican Theatre.

There is also the Theatre Royal Plymouth, one of the UK’s largest regional producing theatres, home to some of the biggest shows found in the West End. It is well worth a visit and perfect for travellers choosing to stay in Situ’s serviced apartments in Plymouth.

Outside of the town centre, and a significant draw for the visitor economy is the Plymouth Argyle football stadium, Home Park. With a capacity of just under 20,000, the ground is one of the more popular grounds amongst football fans in the South West. Plymouth short term accommodation is ideally located near the stadium, perfect for football fans making a weekend trip to the city as an alternative to a holiday rental.
