Sutton Harbour and the Barbican are home to a wide range of independent shops, galleries and specialist service providers. Known as the Independent Shopping Quarter of Plymouth, this historic waterfront district is the perfect place to find a unique gift, a stunning piece of art, that sought after collectible or an unusual antique.
A stroll around the picturesque harbour passing ancient buildings on cobbled streets is also a wonderful day out, and there is a plentiful array of tempting cafes and restaurants to choose from for a restorative coffee or delicious lunch.
Unique, independent shops offer everything from jewellery, art, clothing and antiques to bikes, specialist dive equipment and even wedding dresses.
The sweet-toothed shopper will be spoilt for choice with handmade chocolates at Prete’s, hot chocolate to write home about at Chococcino, and fudge made while you watch at Edward’s Fudge Kitchen.

Sutton Harbour is also only a couple of minutes’ walk from Plymouth’s city centre including Drake’s Circus Shopping Centre and the soon to be built £40million Bretonside Leisure Complex.
