Not what the city needs. A short mostly two level combination of middling national chain business. All looks very dated and it's apparent that even this small scale operation has sucked the heart out of the rest of the retail zone, particularly long standing independents. The cafe area on the top floor is particularly depressing. Still a lot of empty... More

Just arrived at Drakes Circus shopping centre in plymouth. The multi story car park is very tight to drive around. The spaces are also very narrow and to my disappointment to carpark is very untidy with littler covering the floor. We have arrived at 9 am so it has not been cleaned today. Apart from all this the xarpark is... More

It's got a good style mall but needs more decent shops instead of businesses which will last a couple months! Need a massive update!

This shopping centre is brilliant, with a massive variety of shops! The food area upstairs is good too whilst the access from the multi-storey car park is easy. There are multiple exits from the shopping centre to different streets around the city. The only problem we came across was that the toilets shut at 16:00 on Sunday as well as... More

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...
