There are a good selection of shops in Drake's Circus with something to suit everybody. Lots of on-site parking too which is reasonably priced and it's also just a 10 minute walk from the train station.

A great shopping centre, loads of parking as long as your satnav points you in the right direction... not overly expensive to park... Great array of shops and I must say most shops we went in staff were friendly.... Just outside there's a coffee shop called The Americano, reasonably priced, sells food.. able to sit outside and people watch good... More

The only down point is there aren't that many stores before you have finished shopping. Very cleanly place well maintained and nice yo sushi restaurant to people watch from.

Well situated shopping mall located in central Plymouth. Small selection of shops, mainly chain stores, nothing unique to the area or particularly distinctive. If you want the basics - Boots, Marks and Spencer etc. it's fine. There are more individual, smaller shops in nearby market and surrounding area.
