“Defeated at Waterloo and having abdicated a second time, Napoleon wrote from Rochefort to the Prince-Regent of England on July 13, 1815, that having finished his political career, he came to sit in the hearth of the British people. General Gourgaud, in charge of delivering this message, immediately embarked on the rapid cutter Slaney which slashed towards England. The next day, Napoleon boarded the Bellerophon which, having weighed anchor in turn, arrived at Tor Bay on the 24th and, on the 26th, in Plymouth harbor ”. (Duhamel, 2016)

Soon after his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815, the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte surrendered to the British Royal Navy. He was held aboard HMS Bellerophon, anchored in Plymouth Sound for ten days. Tens of thousands of people thronged to catch a glimpse of the celebrity prisoner.

Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City will be commemorating the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death in 2021. Steeped in naval history, modern day Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions, activities, shopping, entertainment and sightseeing.
