Shopping in the Market

The 'New' Pannier Market: Everything You Would Want

This covered market has a little bit of everything, litterally! If you want cd's, books, flowers, bolts of cloth, gifts, clothing, food or anything, it is all under the one roof and at some of the best prices you will find!

What to buy: In this particular place, I would recommend you look out for the picture shop, the photography stall, the numerous books and cd's on offer, and if you are looking to buy gifts for people at home, this is the place to do it.

What to pay: Depends on what you want, but if it is expensive here, then it is extortionate everywhere else.

Address: Plymouth City Centre, opposite Frankfurt Gate

The Barbican Glassworks: Watching the Glassblowing

This shop sells Glass ornaments, tools and everything else you would care to mention. The good thing about this place is that it is possible to walk into the workshopand watch them at work, making what is on offer. There is also a great deal of information on the art of glassblowing available. This place is not so much a business as it is a cultural workshop because I asked them for some repairs on a glass item and they did not charge anything, just glad to help. This is the best way to describe the feel of this shop.

What to buy: Great for presents or a little reminder of your journey down to Plymouth. The only problem is that getting Glass anywhere without breaking is very difficult.

What to pay: Still not too expensive, I would consider it an expensive shop in the Plymouth area.

Address: Barbican, on the Waterfront.

Directions: You cannot miss this one. It is a big building made entirely of Glass.
