Bijoux shops, nice restaurants and beautiful old buildings... it's an area with a lovely atmosphere, and definitely worth a visit.

Harbour side venue which is a great place wander around. There are lots of pubs and restaurants. The atmosphere is maritime and lively. Visit the Plymouth Gin centre.

Definately worth a visit, very historic, lots of quality restaurants and traditional pubs. Lots of interesting independent shops, and the Distilery is a good place to visit.

If you are a visitor to Plymouth I think a visit to the Barbican is a must. So much was destroyed during the war but there is a little of Elizabethan Plymouth surviving on the Barbican. It is of course the place the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from so has huge historical significance. There are also plenty of things to see and some good cafes and restaurants in this area. From the Barbican you can walk along the sea front to the Hoe and this is worth doing.

Loved the Barbican as the city of Plymouth is big and bold, so the Barbican is quaint and old .
I loved walking around the cobbled streets, looking in the antique and curio shops, there are shops selling all sorts of food, tea rooms and cafe's plus a seafood stall and candy floss, a nice place to wander around. In the early evening live music was coming from one of the pubs by the harbour, lots of outdoor seating a nice evening. We did not stay in the Barbican late so cannot comment about the night life there.
