Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Drake Circus Shopping Centre commonly known to locals as The Mall is an ideal visit in inclement weather. Completely indoors over three floors it’s got something for the majority of shopping requirements. A number of major stores as well as a few niche outlets plus plenty of food and drinks outlets to keep you well fuelled. Clean and tidy with security on hand.

    We took our 3 week old daughter for plaster cast prints, they two women who did the prints were amazing with my baby. So kind, friendly and so pleasant. I would definitely recommend anyone wants to go this with their newborn!

    If you are looking to support Local Businesses rather than the big chains, then pay a visit to Plymouth Market where you will find plenty of differing stalls selling many different things. Undercover so whatever the weather it’s ok and you can get food and drinks to keep you well fuelled. Toilets on site as well and you also have security to keep you safe.

    Saw the dates on the glass and took the opportunity to look in to this free exhibition in this university space on the North Hill end of the Levinsky Building ground floor. An interesting mix of formats, sculpture, prints, photography, video and I think paintings. Not riveting but quite well done and having been forced to learn the poem by rote more than half a century ago I couldn’t miss how the various works meshed and harmonised with the familiar/hackneyed phrases and images. Worth half an hour or so of anyone’s time and well curated.

    Been here a couple of times now and it's quite a mesmerising place to visit. Eclectic doesn't really cover it from fine bone China to aeroplane wings to Dr Who life size monsters from the deep!

    Beware the shaggy dog, loves to lay on the floor.

    Martin's work is well worth exploring. So colorful and warm, Martin's working area is like an Alladin's cave. Martin is interesting to chat to and has a great sense of humor.

    We were sad that the cinema had to move, but let’s be fair they now attract a larger audience and can stand a chance to keep going, new seats good staff and a pleasant place to see a film.

    Called to have a cream tea whilst in Devon (It's the law!) though have to confess not being a tea drinker had coffee instead. Lovely place, friendly staff, good service and very nice large scones with plenty of cream and jam - nice coffee too. Would recommend!

    Id heard alot about KARST, and also aware of the regional art lanscape from Bristol downwards. Yet again these guys / girls are doing a great thing for the city.. My visit was pleasant, lots of available information and a friendly welcome. It is in a darker part of Millbay but this shouldnt be a consideration.
    If you like art, contemporary especially, pay this place a visit. I went on a day they were closed but they still let me have a look around!

    This place will be reopened as soon as the lockdown restrictions are lifted. It has been evident to anyone using Southside Street that a deal of work has been going on here for some time. It is to be a new restaurant called The Bottling Plant Ltd’ and the intended to be quite grand. So it’s somewhere new to try. There’s been quite a lot going on in the street during the quiet time.

    It’s not fantastic but there aren’t obvious alternatives locally. If you are doing up or extending an older house or converting a barn or outbuilding then it is well worth looking at what he has here. I call in once or twice a year on spec or more if in search of something specific. There are lots of fittings, fire places, doors etc but unlike bigger places further afield with larger stocks of architectural and other salvage I don’t seem to find so much true quality out of the ordinary stuff. But I will keep coming back.

    Absolutely a must place to stop and see such creative, artistic, and quirky pieces.
    Hard not to buy everything!!! Truly an uplifting place and owner was such a happy, kind man. I was just visiting but so wished I lived near.

    Only in Plymouth on business, and had parked in the car park behind the gallery by accident. It was a lovely surprise to come across Studio 65. A stunning collection of great paintings by well known artists. A must venue to visit.

    Part of a citywide art programme, the Pipe Gallery on the left towards the top of New Street has a curious exhibition of intriguing monochromatic work by Liam Symes and Paul Hilton. More interesting than expected, given that Gestalt apparently means an organised whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts. Here there are lots of tricky configurations often geometric and some biometric hints. Recommended.

    Not been in here for what seems like years. Maybe quite a lot has just passed us by.
