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.

Having grown up and gone to college in Plymouth, the sight of this building almost reduces me to tears. How on earth was the design ever approved in the first place? Surely with something so prominent in the centre of town, approval should have been sought from the public - I can't believe the majority of people would have agreed... More

Went in Christmas shopping. Car park almost full and barriers were jamming so queue was long! Lifts down were busy, but all the shops looking festive and the Mall itself was really looking pretty. Shops were busy but everyone was in the festive mood, and no-one seemed to mind waiting to be served at the check outs. Had lunch (Marks... More

The world seems to stop at Bristol so no big major shops such as John Lewis and IKEA. The road layout around the mall is atrocious. It takes a long time to drive through the ill timed traffic lights, cyclists and students who don't follow the rules. The parking is very expensive and trying to drive there will frustrate you....

Hated my trip to drake circus going through the car park no signs were clearly marked and every time you go round a bend it sounds like your drifting! Then we get to the mall, well what kayos! Toilets were stinking and unclean, primark had clothes all over the floor, children running wild in the lobby area (felt like I... More

I have come here many times to do my shopping, and most times I have experienced good service and good management. It may be small and the lifts might need better control, but why do your shopping in Exeter or Tavistock when you've got here?
