Shop 'till You Drop on a Plymouth City Break
The Independent Quarter showcases a variety of stores positioned around Plymouth City Market. From freshly landed fish to fruit and veg grown locally, hand made jewellery, or just something that little bit different, then the Independent Quarter is the place to go. The Drake Circus shopping centre made a big splash when it opened in 2006 and has firmly established itself as an iconic covered shopping mall, offering locals and visitors the chance to shop in over 60 of the UK’s most well known stores. After a hard day shopping, return to your bedroom at Boringdon Hall Hotel near Plymouth and let us look after you for the evening.
Explore the unique history of The Barbican
A Plymouth City Break wouldn’t be complete without a walk down the cobbled portside streets of The Barbican – Plymouth’s historic quarter. Featuring many independent retailers and specialist art galleries (the late Beryl Cook and Robert Lenckiewicz are just two of the local artists to have won global reputations), The Barbican is a real hub of activity. It is also the home of Plymouth Gin, one of the leading brands and a major tourist attraction in its own right. There are a selection of restaurants, cafes and bars beside the glorious quayside – many of which offer alfresco dining so that you can make the most of the views at any time of year!
Eat Local in Plymouth
Plymouth also hosts a Farmers' Market on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Situated in the heart of the city and with approximately 25 stalls selling a selection of locally reared, grown or made produce, Plymouth's city centre farmers’ market is a lively and bustling market to visit whilst on your Plymouth City Break. Visitors to Plymouth city centre can enjoy the shops seven days a week with many opening on Sundays and until 8pm on Thursdays.
Unlike many City Centres Plymouth has a wealth of attractions alongside the traditional shopping areas. Learn about Plymouth’s rich and significant history at the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and the Mayflower Exhibition. You can also explore the cobbled streets of the Barbican and follow the footsteps of the Pilgrim Fathers.
