    Plymouth – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. Cobblers!
      PIt has the largest number of cobbled streets in the UK. After plans to remove many of the cobbles, the locals protested and the council gave way to public opinion to save their streets.
    2. Famous Folk
      Diver Tom Daley, swimmer Sharon Davies, Captain Robert Scott (Scott of the Antarctic), the first female MP Nancy Astor and dancer Wayne Sleep have all lived here. Philip Schofield got his first job with Plymouth Radio and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle practised medicine in the city.
    3. Ship Ahoy
      Famously the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth Rock but it’s a lesser-known fact that it was where many survivors from the Titanic were brought after being rescued.
    4. Man Overboard
      John Howland was one of the original passengers who set sail on the Mayflower to become the first settlers in America. On route he fell overboard but was saved by the quick thinking crew. His descendants include Franklin D Roosevelt, George W Bush and Humphrey Bogart. In total 16,000,000 American’s can trace their routes back to the ship’s passengers.
    5. Sir Francis
      No, not Trever Francis (although the world’s first £1m footballer came from here), but Sir Francis Drake who saved Britain from the Spanish Armada was once mayor of Plymouth.
    6. Hello Sailor
      HM Davenport Naval Base dates back to 1691 and today provides around 10% of the city’s annual income.
    7. Greatest British Bake House
      Local provider of cakey goodness, Jacka is the country’s oldest bakery.
