Historic Barbican - full of history, where the Pilgrim Fathers set off for the New world. Great place for drinks by the harbour - loads of nightlife - plenty of bars and restaurants - and don't miss the Plymouth Gin Distillery, with its excellent cocktail...More

The Barbican is one of the oldest parts of Plymouth after much of the city was bombed in WW2. It means it has a slightly more traditional feel to it, instead of the high street vibe that you find in the more modern UK towns...More

A very pleasant change from the rest of Plymouth. The Barbican is modern, clean, with nice waterside cafes. Set in a cobblestone historical area, with lovely architecture.

The Barbican is an ideal place if you are looking for somewhere to get food and somewhere to have a drink. Most bars in the summer have outdoor seating with views of the water.

Some really old and quaint buildings. Plenty of cafes and old pubs. Loads of history easily spend a day there and still not see everything.

Always enjoyed a run ashore here when serving and still enjoy the reunions. Plenty of good pubs and food to be had. Majority time here good atmosphere apart from odd fool (as youd find anywhere) Always will pop back to visit
