THE BARBICAN The historic Barbican and Sutton Harbour are the heart of the city's heritage with the oldest buildings and the greatest number of historical stories. Around the Barbican, a vibrant place of cobbled streets, narrow lanes and more than 200 Listed Buildings, many of them Tudor and Jacobean, offer a wide range of cosmopolitan boutique shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants set amidst picturesque scenery. The main street of Southside Street is home to the world famous Plymouth Gin Distillery, the building dating from the early 1400s and a former monastery inhabited by Black Friar Monks. Antique stores, galleries, boutique shops and cafes thrive on Southside Street. Sutton Harbour is perfectly placed to make the most of all Plymouth has to offer, from unparalleled historic landmarks to some of the city’s largest and liveliest family attractions.
