Making Plymouth England's Home of Sport


In celebration of this year’s sporting events, which include the vintage cycle race, L’Eroica, the British Diving Championships, and a 2015 Rugby World Cup Training

Camp, VisitEngland is launching a quest to find the country’s top sporting destination, and will be asking the public to send in their nominations.

By submitting an image of your ‘home of sport’, sports fans will help decide the jewel in England’s sporting crown.

Famous for the Plymouth Life Centre and world-class diving facilities as well as home to the Plymouth Ski-Centre, Mountbatten Watersports Centre and Plymouth Argyle Football Club we have lots going on. We have even hosted a number of large-scale sailing events like the America’s Cup World Series.

To help get Plymouth crowned as the UK’s ‘Home of Sport’ we want you to submit your sporting pictures. Perhaps you took part in Sky Ride or the Grand Fondo, or plan to watch the Plymouth Regatta or Sutton Harbour Classic Boat Rally.

Simply tweet or Instagram a picture of your sporting hotspot, using the hashtag #HomeofSport, making sure you include #Plymouth as your location!

Nominations are open until Monday 31 August.

Suitable nominations will be approved within 48 hours. You can see all the nominations received on an image Sports Wall at

An expert panel will shortlist six sporting destinations in England, which will be announced on 16 September.

At this point, you can get voting! The shortlist will be visible at and open to public vote.

On 23 October, the destination that has received the most votes will be declared England’s Home of Sport.
