Nice place for a wander
Jul 2021
One of the few remaining original parts of the city centre, there are lots of lovely old buildings, now interesting shops and restaurants. all next to the waterfront handy for boat trips or just looing at the moored up yachts.

Really lovely old part of the city that wasn't raised during the war. It it's such a nice area and lots of places to eat and drink and the front and aquarium just round the corner. Ideal evening area to just relax.

Interesting harbour
Jul 2021
Always interesting to wonder along the narrow streets and alleyways and feel a sense of history. A variety of eating and drinking places and shops.

Harbour views, shops, antiques, all-in-one destination
Jun 2021
We were there on a sunny day in June before all the crowds return, so it was especially nice. Everyone we met there was friendly and helpful and glad to be open again. I had been especially looking for books, The Book Cupboard was terrific. Three floor of second-hand books and he sells on the internet, too. The Barbican has lots of pubs, during the day it was calm, by the look of many of them you can tell at night it will be more exciting.

Boats on the water, Dolphin, Minerva, Cap'n Jaspers - all have a firm place in my heart.

Love the Barbican and its characters, pubs and atmosphere, plus the small shops where browsing is a pleasure. You cannot beat fish and chips on a bench by the Mayflower Steps in the sunshine. My idea of heaven and the chippies are fab, too. Recommend Harbourside fish and chips but there are many. I've not arrived in Plymouth until I've been to the Barbican. The heart of the city.

Yet another glammed up fish restaurant opened today.
Jun 2021
The Fish Lounge opened today 26 6 21. Grab and go takeaway on the left and glitzy sit down restaurant on the right. Huge thick planked bench tables out on the pavement and all protected by the new recycled clunky anti-tank planters.

We love the relaxed vibe around the Barbican, there is something calming about the moored boats bobbing gently on the water, the sound and smells of the ocean, the views out to the horizon. Always worth a stroll when in the area, maybe a boat trip, and definitely a pint in one of the many pubs.

Nice area like out of a Pirates movie. Quite a few places to sit but most of them overpriced. Nice fresh fish though. Difficult to order if you need to have all those apps.
