When it comes to Christmas be sure to visit the Plymouth Barbican!

The Plymouth Barbican is filled with Shops staffed by friendly traders who are more than happy to help. Not sure what to buy the parents? Run out of ideas what to buy your partner? How about something unique?! With a huge wide range of Shops to choose from a brisk walk around the historic Barbican harbour will give you plenty of ideas to choose from.

After picking up a few items don’t forget there are also plenty of places to put your feet up for a coffee or a bite to eat. Check out our extensive range of Cafes, Restaurants and Take Away options.

Or alternatively after a successful shopping trip why not pop into one of the Pubs / Bars along the Plymouth Barbican Waterfront and celebrate with a cool drink and check out the local vibrate night life.

Yes, you could go online, you could pop into a major retailer and grab what everyone is grabbing or you can take a stroll on the Plymouth Barbican. Pick up a few items from a local Plymouth trader and follow this with a rest up in a Cafe / Restaurant / Pub before heading home…

Give it a try. You’ll be surprised what you may find!
