It’s been a huge disappointment for visitors and locals that this important building has been closed for so very long but when we enquired this week we were told that the council are confident that current works should be finished in time for reopening in autumn 2020 in time for the closing weeks of the Mayflower 400 anniversary events.

Someone ought to be very ashamed for the recent history of this building. Left for years to limp along without much history. The closed in late 2015 for ‘essential work’ and restoration. Then a few days ago, up goes scaffolding virtually blocking the road for all the other businesses up almost the full length of New Street. Shambolic planning and lack of insight into the frail balance of the Barbican tourist industry. Just like the continued and unexplained closure of the vital swing bridge over the Sutton Harbour lock cutting off the waterside walk and deterring those thinking making use of the fish restaurant and aquarium. All I would say to those coming here to find out about Barbican attractions, is that it is now even more difficult to catch a glimpse of bits of the outside of the city council owned and historically important Elizabethan House and no one knows or admits to knowing when it may reopen.

It feels like a local disgrace. Even with the drift toward Mayflower 2020 this undoubtedly important period building seems to be in unhealthy uncertain limbo. I am in New Street often and there is no sign of activity. It just sits there, closed to the public, an embarrassment .

Cheap admission and really shows our history. My favourite part was the WW2 display with the Anderson bomb shelter. The air raid sirens, gas masks and evacuation really hits hone on how we had it. You'll probably be through it in about an hour.

It is just adjacent to Elizabethan Gardens and two minutes walk from Barbican. The Elizabethan House is in Plymouth's Barbican area and has a number of restored rooms and a garden. The house was nearly demolished but was saved by the city council. The Elizabethan House at no 32 New Street and its neighbor were built in the late 16th Century as part of a development for merchants and sea captains prosperous from trade and booty. The timber-framed and limestone houses are distinguished by their windows, extending the full width of the ground and first floors, exposed beams, large fireplaces.
