Plymouth Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Plymouth developed from the union of three towns, Sutton, Devonport and Stonehouse. Growing trade with France, then with the rest of the world, enabled Plymouth to become the fourth largest town in England for a while, after London, Bristol and York. From the 13C, Plymouth also played a major role as a naval and military port, from which soldiers and explorers, such as Drake, Raleigh, Cook, and the Pilgrim Fathers set sail.
