Cornwall (Plymouth), England
Plymouth maintains a position of honor in England's long and proud maritime history. It was from Plymouth that many historic voyages were embarked upon. History aside, Plymouth is also the gateway to Devon and Cornwall's ravishing countryside -- one of the most beautiful landscapes in all the British Isles. It's a land of rugged coastlines, small villages, granite farmhouses, and the brooding Dartmoor landscape.
Largest city in Devon, Plymouth is a mix of modern urban center and suburbs. Much of the city was rebuilt following World War II, when Plymouth was nearly destroyed by German bombing.
The breathtakingly barren, windswept plateau is broken by isolated granite outcrops and cut by winding streams. It was here that Sherlock Holmes searched for the Hounds of the Baskerville.
Plymouth's old district still preserves the city's colorful past with its narrow cobbled streets, Elizabethan houses and Royal Citadel.
