Situated on the south coast of Devon, Plymouth is a bustling naval port surrounded by stunning countryside (Dartmoor National Park) that attracts tourists from all over. For students, the most basic requirements are covered with varied shopping opportunities, a decent nightlife and an attractive place to live. The university is very much part of the city and is readily accepted as a positive influence. If you are feeling particularly cultured there are plenty of sites to see; in particular the Royal Citadel, built in 1666 and still operational now. Or, if not, you can always visit our friendly neighbours across the channel.
