Got all the standard stores and good range in shops

The only down point is there aren't that many stores before you have finished shopping. Very cleanly place well maintained and nice yo sushi restaurant to people watch from.

Great shopping centre in the heart of Plymouths city centre, lots of decent shops to choose from, including House of Fraser and Marks and Spencer, great selection of cafes ,and other places to eat, Just the spot to while away an hour or two shopping..

Well situated shopping mall located in central Plymouth. Small selection of shops, mainly chain stores, nothing unique to the area or particularly distinctive. If you want the basics - Boots, Marks and Spencer etc. it's fine. There are more individual, smaller shops in nearby market and surrounding area.

Decent size, has some variety. Including: primark, topshop, new look, lush, paperchase, Apple, tiger, mountain warehouse, waterstones. Many more spreading over the first two floors, then a few on the third. The third is the food level too. Including cafe curva (not sure on the spelling), Burger King, spudulike and a juice bar. 5 levels of parking, not usually an... More

Our first visit to Plymouth, drove in from Teignmouth, easy to find the shopping centre, well sign posted, parking was easy. Found the shopping centre to be good, nice food area, place was clean and tidy with good security. A good selection of shops, hence we left with a few bags and less money. Was also central for the town,... More

Needs more different shops! So much space to have better shops. Would probably bring more tourists to the city if we had more and better shops!

First time to Plymouth shopping had heard drake circus was great how wrong. Didn't know where any shops were they have an information station but that from what I could tell only shows you what shops they have no actual locations for someone new to Plymouth it was a nightmare with 2 children one in a pram. I wouldn't be... More

Hi There, We are disappointed that you didn't enjoy your trip to Drake Circus. We have a green ethos and thus have maps of the centre in our digital pods throughout the mall which you may have missed (but we understand in retrospect this is not overly helpful), however, if you do choose to return and were looking for a...
