Always something to see. Places of interest to read about on the way around. Interesting that the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from Plymouth. So many boats commercial and Private. Lovely to stand and dream that you are on one of them and about to set sail on a journey yourself. Seeped in History. The sunsets can also be magnificent. And lovely... More

Enjoyed visiting the Barbican and the various antique shops and retro clothes shops in the area. Had a boat trip around the harbour and saw the Mayflower steps. Good for a day out.

Had a great mid morning, late afternoon walk around. Stopped off for a drink and something to eat in one of the many choices of venue. If the weather is good it's great if not it's still a nice place to visit. Parking was a pain but it is a popular place to visit. Defiantly worth a visit if you... More

Sorry to have to disagree with many other reviewers but we found the Barbican very disappointing. Yes, there are lots of restaurants but the greasy smell of cooking is everywhere. Additionally, it was certainly not a quiet relaxing area because each restaurant thinks it has to out do others with noisy music. The Barbican is not a place that we... More
