‘The Barbican’ is the name given to the western and northern sides of the old harbour area of Plymouth. It is one of the few parts of the city to escape most of the destruction of The Blitz during the 2nd World War.

There are cobbled streets, narrow lanes and more than 200 listed buildings. The world famous Plymouth Gin Distillery and Plymouth Fisheries are close by, the fisheries is the 2nd largest fish market in England and plays a crucial role in the South West’s economy.
