“The Barbican is a prominent historic quarter of Britain's Ocean City. Visit the steps where the intrepid voyagers set sell on the Mayflower bound for the Americas in 1620. All around the Barbican different periods of history are etched into the vernacular illustrating the important role that Plymouth has played in maritime history. Feeling peckish? There's plenty to choose from when it comes to brunch, lunch or dinner. Enjoy the catch of the day at the many fish and chip restaurants or other local produce at the food stalls and restaurants. ”
