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.

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....

Yes its another shopping centre but its not vast, has some character, loads of parking space and a reasonable range of shops that you get anywhere. There are one or two empty units but some new outlets have arrived. Yo Sushi (not my taste) sits right in the middle of the entrance area and makes an interesting, usually well attended,... More

Personally, a day in Drake's Circus dragging around all the high street British shops like River Island, Monsoon and Next is my idea of hell. However, this is a fabulous mall, tonnes of shops, loads of places to eat (all the usual Starbucks etc). So it's 3 stars from me because I can appreciate that it's good even if it's... More

The mall is progressively becoming a food hall with less options in major retailers. The first thing that hits you is the stench of greasy fried food generated by Yo Sushi. Placed in a location which could never have been anticipated as a food area and lacking in extraction facilities sums up the desperation to bring any company into Plymouth... More

I find these kind of shopping centres that are popping up all over the place just a bit *meh*. However, I quite like this one. It's not overly big. There's a Juice Moose in the food hall at the top, Fat Face seems to have a succession of decent offers and there are plenty of coffee shops for those in... More

On Saturday we did a day trip with Williams Travel of Camborne to Plymouth. We had a really lovely day and Drakes circus is a wonderful shopping centre. It is very clean and they have some super shops there. Will certainly return.
