So many quirky shops, lovely food stops, plenty of things to see and do on the Barbican. Always recommend it to people from outside of Plymouth

Cobbled stones, lots of shops and cafes. Plymouth gin distillery where you can go on a tour. You can see the boats coming in and out and from the Barbican you can either walk or drive to the Hoe.

Cosy restaurant serving traditional Italian food, staff very welcoming and friendly. Would like to say very good but doesn’t quite make it with some of the sauces lacking flavour beyond the tomatoes.

Great place to go and wander through the cobblestoned streets, you are spoilt for pubs, restaurants, cafes and quirky shops. Great place to visit when it is raining is the National Aquarium, lots to see.

Good to stroll along this area of Plymouth always something going on places to eat, entertainment and it’s got a real ‘buzz’ about it, a must visit.
