The city is home to the National Marine Aquarium and the Theatre Royal with stunning National Trust Properties all within easy reach.

Plymouth has also hosted major events in recent years including the America’s Cup World Series and MTV Crashes and will soon welcome the delayed Mayflower 400 celebrations and host the British Arts Show for the second time in 2021.  

There’s also regular sports action at Plymouth Argyle, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth Raiders – the city’s three professional teams.

As the largest city in Devon & Cornwall, it is home to international, national, regional and local law firms with lawyers whose reputations stretch far a wide bringing high quality work to Plymouth.

It has a thriving professional scene with many leading firms of accountants and property professionals along with the presence of all the major banks.  Whilst sectors strengths in marine, creative industries, manufacturing, hospitality and tourism attract talented people to come to the city from all over the world.
