The Barbican Reviews & Ratings

  • Have kept boats in half a dozen marinas and this is probably the best. Right in the middle of town with loads of excellent places to eat nearby as well as supermarkets within easy walking distance. Friendly helpful staff, sheltered from the weather by a large lock with quick turnarounds. Good facilities too.

  • CHANDLERS .BISTRO. Situated off Queen Anne,s Battery Cattedown. Plymouth . This bistro and location has breath taking views across Plymouth Sound and Mountbatten and beyond . As a regular visitor , the scenic views add to the pleasant ambience , mine host Katie Inch .adds a pinch of her personality to the extensive menu .

  • Great place to wander round, get coffee or lunch and just watch the boats and yachts moving around. On a hot day it's like it's not England (and there's more food options than fish and chips like you find in Brighton). Fantastic views out to sea.

  • Visiting fee is great and is nice could do with some TLC but for the price it does the job

  • Love walking around this area- beautiful scenery and the real history of the city at your fingertips
