Pretty grim, but then, isn't most high street shopping these days?

Shopping here is an exercise in patience. I suppose there's a good choice if you don't mind the pushing and shoving and the crowds, the blaring music and the artificial lights... read more

Shopping here is an exercise in patience. I suppose there's a good choice if you don't mind the pushing and shoving and the crowds, the blaring music and the artificial lights. It's basically your every day shopping centre that you see the whole stretch of the country. There's nothing special, nothing unique, nothing individual about it. Much nicer shops to... More

Nothing that catches the eye, no quality originally or flair. Several very expensive eating stalls. Not a good place unless you need shelter from the rain.

Great shopping mall so many good shops to look at lots of food places there is no need to leave the mall all day because everything is there for you. Easy to find car park attached to the mall reasonable car park fees and right in town if you need to go to any other shops.

Staying in Cornwall , weather was not good so decided to go to this shopping centre. It is clean and lots of interesting shops, and plenty of places to eat. Got lots of bargains. As you leave the centre it leads onto lots of other shops. Well worth a visit.

As a local to Plymouth, having seen development over the years in and around Plymouth, the demolished old Drakes Circus Shopping Centre with its underpass next to C&A all changed when construction started on the Drake Circus Shopping Mall (if that's what you want to call it) It wasn't long after opening that problems started to occur with the reconfigured...

All the big name shops in the same arcade, from The Apple Store through to all the clothes shops. Parking is attached to the centre and probably reasonable charges for secure parking.

There is a reasonable number of stores but most of them are really expensive for travellers. Not many options for cheaper prices. Primark would be an option for cheaper things. The food court is small. Not many restaurants are available.

A nicely kept shopping centre with good sized parking spaces (important for big car drivers) and not too badly priced parking either. Good range of shops and places to eat/drink. Not sure about the free wi-if - it was patchy and pretty slow....
