Welcome to the website of the

Devon and Cornwall Polar Society

We are a small group of enthusiasts with a wide range of interests in the Polar Regions. We are a friendly group and welcome new people to join us. We meet at least twice a year in Plymouth for talks and events. We are planning a major event in 2018 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Captain Scott's birth in Plymouth. Go to Scott 150 to find out more.
