  • Yes its the big main place to shop in Plymouth. Yes it's got all the generic big brands, and to many food outlets if you ask me. Be prepared to be hit in the face with the smell of sushi on walking in as Yo Susi is right by the doors, on a warm day it's not the best of smells to fill your lungs with. If you do visit here, please consider a little walk to the other end of town, yes it will be a little rough looking. But it's full of independent shops and an inside market, again with independent traders. Even a small amount spent at an independent store goes along way if we all contribute
  • This is a great mall with a good variety of stores! It's very well kept with cleaners and security operating on a regular basis. The staff seem to be very nice and helpful from my experiences and it's never overly busy which can make shopping there more enjoyable compared to busier malls.
  • Shopping mall home to lots of good shops. Contains toilets, lots of places to buy food and drink, and seasonal market stalls. There are often other attractions in the main area as well, such as a grotto at Christmas time and recently a flower exhibition. A great place to shop in Plymouth
  • Easy to get around. Toilets are cleaned often. Great location. Good parking
  • I love it here. Can park and go shopping without getting soaked from the lovely Great British weather. Plenty of shops and coffee shops. Loads more outside that are very easy to get to also

Where to stay in Plymouth

Lodging in Plymouth range from stylish brand names and cozy B&Bs, to affordable self-catering apartments and private inns. To be near the city's main attractions, stay near the waterfront. Farther inland, you can explore a world of less expensive but just as comfortable boutique hotels and hostels, all within walking distance of the city's finest shops, restaurants, and bars. For an even less expensive alternative, consider staying in the quiet suburbs. Though a bit far from the city center, suburban hotels offer top-quality rooms at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
