We found a beautiful tea rooms within the harbour area. Very quaint and clean. Food was very well cooked and fast delivery. Very friendly staff. Polite and attentive without being too much.

Very historic and plenty of things to do inc pottery painting, tourist info, speed boat rides, fishing trips and more. Plenty of local independent shops, cafes and amenities. Great fish and chips and pubs there. In the evening, lost of nightlife so don't drive there but daytime, it is amazing for families and couples.

Ever since my stay in 2014, Barbican is full of interesting events as the main attraction of Plymouth. Best point of meet and touristic venue for first timers in Plymouth. The best place about Barbican is that Winter and Summer gives different vibes to Barbican.

The Barbican area in Plymouth is full of old world charm, with its cobbled narrow streets and shops that offer something a little different. Fantastic fish and chips can be found here. The best I've ever tasted available from the Barbican Fish Bar

This is a good area to wander around if you like old buildings it has a multitude of small and unusual shops, bars, restaurants and you can look at the boats and get to the aquarium.

There are several attractions in the Barbican, the oldest undamaged part of Plymouth. While the city centre was devastated during the last war, the Barbican retains its Old Plymouth charm. Check out the Plymouth Gin distillery.

Lovely looking at the various shops here. Lots of art galleries and local crafts. Tea rooms and fine dining, fish and chips and pastys. All within the cobbled Barbican area. Mayflower steps, aquarium and close to The Hoe. Great day out.
