Drakes Circus is ok! There are the same major shops as every high street has and easy access to the main town area, also only 15 minutes walk from the Hoe !

spent a day in Plymouth and was pleasantly surprised at this shopping centre. Plenty of good shops, excellent food area and easy to get to the main city shopping and all areas

My little boy loves visiting Drakes Circus.. We have visited twice this weekend. It's lovely in the winter months. A nice warm and friendly atmosphere with plenty of choices of shops and eateries. My only gripe would be it needs to be bigger.

A great feel and modern shopping mall. All your main brands for food and drink: Costa , Starbucks , Spud U Like , Eds Dinner, Yo sushi etc Apple Store , mobile phone stores and a fair selection of Cloths shops . I always enjoy it in there and it has a nice vibe to the place !

It's a nice place to be, busy with decent shops and a car park. The main issue is traffic access with incredibly short sighted planning putting all the traffic around Charles Cross roundabout. I could do without yo sushi smells wafting around but, it's worth a visit and an asset to Plymouth

I enjoyed visiting the variety of shops within Drake Circus and using one of the eateries for a small snack whilst there. I must admit, it's very much like all shopping centres with similar named stores/eateries but for those of us from smaller places it makes a change to see the larger branches or even some of the shops themselves....

The shopping has a wide range of products laces to purchase all types of goods. There are many clothes shops and it's all enclosed so you don't need to worry about the weather. There are also places to eat and get a snack which is really good. The whole shopping experience is very good! A good day out shopping for... More

What a dull shopping centre. Lack of small unique shops. Everywhere seems now to be Food or Drink. Stick to the Barbican if looking for something different. Please please get some small unique stores in so we can find something a little different. No space? Then get rid of a few food or coffee stores.
