From pilgrims to Pocahontas – Plymouth is a city steeped in history with the spirit of discovery at its very heart. The Pilgrim Fathers left Plymouth's shores for the New World, whilst Scott of the Antarctic, Captain James Cook, Charles Darwin and the two global circumnavigators Francis Drake and Francis Chichester are just some of the renowned explorers who have set sail from this city. Plymouth Sound, the city's natural deepwater harbour, saw the Royal Navy station here in the 17th century, helping to create a bustling Georgian port from its medieval origins. Plymouth was badly bombed during the blitz of World War, but the aftermath of the bombing saw the creation of the new city centre - lauded nationally as the finest and most complete body of 1950s architecture in the UK.
