Been to Drake Circus many times. Thought it was time to review it. My 1st thought is TOILETS ON EVERY LEVEL. I find it strange that they are not. Its hells delight trying to find the loo with a desperate 7 year old. That said he loo's are clean. Bit disappointed to see shops closed on a Sunday in the... More

The majority of shops in this place are closed with nothing to fill the void and have been like this for some time. Some shops even come and go in a matter of months and after visiting a few times it becomes boring quickly. Why not fill the empty space with shops such as Forever 21. Better food choices would...

Upon finding a fit bird in town while wearing my new jeans and t-shirt (jeans £35 and t-shirt £30), i wanted to bang her somewhere clean so i wouldn't receive a infection XD.

This is the very up to date multi-level indoor mall for one stop shopping in Plymouth. There are all kinds of high end boutiques, shops, department store, fast food restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlor, etc.

Hugely disappointing mini mall. Seems nonetheless to have sucked the heart out of the rest of the retail area. With the exception of the Apple showroom and Primark there are no significant draws. The point is sadly well made. If you are shopping in the south west then go to somewhere like Tavistock or Truro if you want a pleasant... More

Plymouth is the largest city west of Bristol. Given that fact one would assume it would be fit for purpose for serving the population of Devon and Cornwall. Unfortunately this is not the case. Drake Circus was widely anticipated and years were spent in the planning and development of what was supposed to be a premier shopping mall to serve... More

We loved how they had a Jane Norman and Hannah was able to find a nice dress in there. We love primark always a great bargain to... More

Plenty of shops to choose from. Numerous places to eat from. Security evident at all times. Ideal as the town centre shops near by. Toilet facilities also in the centre.

Plenty of shopping options to get majority of Christmas Shopping done. Not eaten there but there did seem to be a few places that you could have a meal/snack. Whole centre kept clean and tidy.
