I would just like to write a review on the Drake Circus Shopping Centre, which is based in Plymouth and for those of you who wish to know it is only about a mile or so down the road from where I live - so if anyone is in the area, then give me a shout and come and visit! Opening nearly four years...

“Shopaholics Dream”

Brand new, under cover and in the town centre

High Parking Charge

The Drake Circus Shopping Mall opened in the heart of Plymouth in October 2006 following months of the city centre looking and feeling like a massive building and construction site (which it was!). It replaced a crumbling old shopping complex which was totally razed to the ground to make way for...

I spent a morning there early April 09. I had read some inaccurate and unhelpful comments here and therefore was very surprised just how clean and refreshing the place was. There was quite a good selection of shops some of which were of interest to men, such as the large electrical store. I find...

I really like this car park, being able to pay with your debit card is very convenient. the toilets are excellent. The mall is airy, light and clean. Staff and security are efficient and look smart. There are a lot of similar shops close together (fashion clothes and shoes) But most of the shops are well presented and spacious. It would be better to have a wider variety of shops but maybe this will change in time. Overall well worth a visit if you are clothes shopping.

its a tacky mall full of chavs and kevs. It has no identity and the only thing that attracts the few visitors it gets, is Primark, which specialises in selling clothes made by Indian kids. Its car park is twice as expensive as all the other car-parks in plymouth and do not expect to return to your car to find all 4 wheels as security is a joke ! The best thing about this grotesque mall is the way out. I would rather have my teeth pulled out without anesthetic than endure that horrible tacky mall again.

This must be the worst mall i have ever been to in my life. Apart from paying over the top parking charges (when i returned my windscreen wipers hade been ripped off ) inside was far worse. There are only a handful of units, let to shops that simply rip you off with excessive charging and poor...

One of the most boring little malls in Europe, with nothing new except the same bland multi-nationals that you find on every high street in Britain. Parking is a rip-off and likewise so are its shops whose prices are a lot higher than normal.

It is very difficult and expensive to park. Once inside a lot of the units are empty. it is extremely expensive and is surrounded by a horrible purple fence. The staff are very rude and its a waste of a trip.

“inadequate facilities”

none

many shops have closed, lots of yobs

I went to this mall on Saturday and found it lacking in basic amenities for anyone with a baby or children. "Passion for perfume", "inspire jewellery", and "pine and oak" are all shops that have closed or about to close - there were many unlet units and to be honest there was only Primark, new...

expensive, grotty, unsafe

We went around this mall yesterday and i was not impressed by the fact that when we got back to the car park somebody had slashed all 4 of our car tyres. The cameras were swithced off and nobody was in the slightest bit concerned as evidently this happend all the time. Our experience inside the...

Very accurate review, the car aprking charges are higher than the rest of the city, but you do not get penalised for staying over 4 hours, only stying over 6 hours. In fact you will find it one of the cheapest car parks in the South West. It is also very secure and convenient especially if you have children with you.
