Good selection of restaurants and pubs, a definite stop in Plymouth. Overlooks Plymouth sound. Bus service is the best way to visit this attraction, or taxi.

The historical old port part of Plymouth is a vibrant entertainment area, pubs, bars, restaurants all now occupying what was a very busy working port/seafront area. Unfortunately some significant parts have been demolished in favour of apartments that quite frankly are out of place...shame on...More

Just do it! walk, stop, admire, eat, drink, relax! then carry on until you get to the Hoe. What a chilled out place to be, just love it.

Around the Barbican are the oldest and most interesting historic parts of Plymouth. Unfortunately the cobbled areas and especially high kerbs make it very difficult and uncomfortable to use a wheelchair. The City should look into improving accessibility.

A must to visit the barbican with its many places to eat and drink, boat trips abound and when the weather is sunny there is nothing better than sitting by the harbour with a cold beer

Visited The Barbican today for Plymouth's Pirate Weekend. The place was very busy. Lots to see and plenty going on. The weather was kind and the kids had a great time

A very busy and friendly location service is always available particularly good food and reasonably priced drinks the only downside are the toilets in busy times are not the most hygienic
