Loved walking around the many little shops, ice cream parlours and cafes. It's also a place steeped in history with the Mayflower Steps to be seen. Can't wait to come back.

The Barbican is a very lively place with lots of really good eating places smashing fish and chips.can eat looking out over the marina,lots of good tea and coffee shops.
Can wander around looking at chocolate cakes, wedding dresses, nearly new,have a tour of the gin house,and a cocktail, lunch at tanners.look round an art gallery, decorate your own plate. And nearby the terrific aquarium.

I was driven around the Barbican during the early evening so my viewing was limited. I'd like to have walked around in fine weather but it is England after all and I did travel in October. The quaint old buildings were lovely and typical of that era.
