Plymouth is the largest city in Devon with a population of over 250,000 and is a unitary authority. The city of Plymouth has traditionally had a maritime economy including the largest Naval Dockyard in the UK at Devonport, which attracts significant marine and maritime business. In addition, Plymouth is the preferred location for many regional and national firms’ offices, as well as Plymouth University, which has a population of around 20,000 students.
As well as being a significant commercial centre, Plymouth is a popular tourist destination due in part to its geographical location. Steeped in history, the City is the home of Sir Francis Drake (a former Mayor of Plymouth) and the departure point of the historic Mayflower. In addition, it is well located to explore local attractions such as Drakes Island, the nearby South Hams and Dartmoor. Visit Plymouth recorded that over 5.4 million tourists visit the city annually (2018), and has the goal to grow that number by 15% by 2030, and visitor spending by 30%. This is anticipated to generate 1,000 new jobs and bring the employment in tourism to 9,000 jobs. In 2021, Plymouth was the only market in the UK to have a RevPAR above 2019 levels based on STR’s data.
