Here's a review -
This isn't a specific shop, but rather the main shopping area of Plymouth. Here you will find a small selection of your typical High Street stores, including Debenhams & Dingles, Marks & Spencers, River Island, Topshop, HMV & Virgin, Boots, numerous sports shops, all major banks and building societies, a selection of travel agents, charity shops, cafes etc. All of this is to be found in a large pedestrianised area, with multi-storey car parks around the edges and it is within easy walking distance of Plymouth train station and Bretonside bus station.

It's got a very wide range of shops, more so than the rest of Plymouth or many other shopping malls. I was very impressed with the amount of variation.

The Plymouth Sun Dial is a major meeting place and shopping area for the city folk. The area is known to have numerous rides and recreational activities organised for children of shoppers on holidays as well.
Close to the Sun Dial is the Piazza, which plays host to various events and it even boasts of a giant TV screen on which people can watch news bulletins and sporting events. The Piazza's seating arrangement with its beautifully arranged Spanish trees is an aesthetic model for many other shopping areas as people can easily find resting places here.
