This situated on the Barbican and is well stocked with information. Have always found the staff very helpful. We used to have one in the City centre but unfortunately it closed.On coach tours people arrive down in this area for boat trtips. Plenty to see and do on the Barbican and loads of places to eat.

Its ok for what it is, and situated on the Barbican its in a good position. However it often has only 2 staff on, and sometimes has out of date posters on display or events not displayed at all.

The information centre is not easy to find. It is tucked away on the Barbican, away from the City Centre and is rather dark and uninviting. Inside, the staff are helpful and they have lots of information to hand, you just have to walk a bit to find it.

I took my visitors to the centre and was amazed at the amount of interesting information available to the public.It is in a good central location of the Barbican and easily accessible to disabled people. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area but a pity that there isn't somewhere like it in the City Centre.

To find out anything at all about Plymouth, the Waterfront or what is going on, talk to Clare or one of the staff - if they don't know or have an answer they will pick up a phone and find out for you. There is all sorts of literature and you will never be left wondering what to do in... More

Doing a routine shop at Sainsburys Marsh Mills, I thought I would finally take a look at this building next door. No sign of a tourist or discovery centre. Looks as if the space has been occupied by a bridal shop for some time.
