The Barbican

Plymouth is a city shaped by the fortunes of sea, trade and war, nowhere more so than in the historic Barbican- Plymouth's delightful old port. Many of the city’s top attractions are situated right here, on the Plymouth Barbican. From National Marine Aquarium – home to the biggest fish tank in Europe, through to the famous Plymouth Gin Distillery and family friendly Barbican Leisure Park, there is lots to see and do for all ages! The Plymouth Barbican is oozing with history and heritage.  Amongst the stunning architecture, you can find many great places to eat & drink and be entertained as well as vast array of independent shops and galleries.

Whether you are visiting Plymouth or if you live nearby, this is the place to discover everything you ever wanted to know about the place from where Sir Francis Drake sailed, from where the Pilgrim Fathers departed to settle the New World (the Mayflower Steps) and where Britons danced in defiance of Hitler's Luftwaffe.
