Sounding out your new city
AS a city, Plymouth has very few large country houses, but it does possess some of national importance, like Saltram House, run by the National Trust.
Many of the city's most important buildings are associated with the Dockyard, such as the Royal William Yard and Naval Hospitals, and are listed as Grade II* or Grade I, reflecting their significance.
Within Plymouth there are 37 scheduled ancient monuments. Although most of these are connected with the defence of the city, such as the Palmerston Forts, Drake's Island and Plymouth Castle, others reflect the city's earlier history, like Worth's Bone Cave in Cattedown and Burrow Hill Round Barrow in Plymstock.
Plymouth's Barbican is home to Britain's maritime heritage. This is the place from where Sir Francis Drake sailed, from where the Pilgrim Fathers departed to settle in the New World (the Mayflower Steps) and where Britons danced in defiance of Hitler's Luftwaffe.
