Shopping in Plymouth
Shopping in Plymouth can be great fun: from famous brands such as Apple and Next to a host of more unusual independent boutique-style stores. The city centre benefits from wide pedestrianised tree-lined streets, al-fresco cafes and enough benches and seating to rest any shopaholic’s weary feet.
Plymouth is the largest centre for shopping in the South West, outside of Bristol, and features many independent retailers as well as national brands and high street names in its varied shopping areas.
Plymouth City Centre is a modern, pedestrianised area where visitors are encouraged to spend their time shopping without the need for transport. Offering shoppers a little bit of everything, Plymouth’s extensive range of shopping districts and markets is well laid out for easy access, not only for shopping, but also for making the most of the great range of restaurants, cafes and Plymouth’s entertainment venues and attractions.
You can experience Plymouth's rich artistic heritage with the Barbican's speciality shops and art galleries. Many local artists have won global reputations, including the late Beryl Cook and Robert Lenckiewicz. There is something for everyone on the Plymouth Barbican with many little gems waiting to be discovered.
If it’s big high street brands, quality independent shops and great food you are after, all comfortably undercover, then Drake Circus, right in the heart of Plymouth, makes a great day out.
Fashion chain selling clothes & accessories for men & women, some with nature-inspired prints. White Stuff started life in 1985. Our ski-loving founders, George and Sean, had the idea of selling T-shirts to fund their stays in the French Alps (the "white stuff" is snow.)
