Plymouth Barbican is the most historical area and tourist centre on the sea front and in Plymouth city centre. A traditional small picturesque harbour, with narrow Elizabethan cobbled streets and Tudor buildings, the oldest part of Plymouth. Including examples of Elizabethan houses and gardens, and the famous historical mayflower steps where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed for the America’s. It is now a thriving hub for recreation, shops, bars, craft workshops, art galleries and restaurants with al fresco heated dinning on the cobbled streets overlooking the old harbour.
