The three main Naval Bases are the home to the Royal Navy's surface and submarine fleet of ships.
Portsmouth, Devonport and Clyde Naval Bases offer support to their base ships in the areas of personnel, engineering and supplies.
Naval bases are usually a hub of city life, employing large sections of the local community - whether directly working for the Royal Navy or in the related defence industries.
Portsmouth Naval Base
Portsmouth Naval Base has been part of the city since 1194. It is home to a significant part of the RN's surface fleet including the RNs Aircraft Carrier, all of the destroyers, half of the frigates, one minehunter squadron, and the P2000 patrol ships.
Devonport Naval Base
Devonport Naval Base in Plymouth has been offering support to the Royal Navy since 1691, and is the home of the Navy's assault ships, the Trafalgar-class submarines, half the frigates and the majority of the hydrographic fleet.
Clyde Naval Base
Clyde Naval Base at Faslane is home to Britain's Vanguard-class submarines, and one of the Navy's two minehunting squadrons.
