A view of the Harbour - Plymouth Fisheries

Located some three and a half hours from London, the city of Plymouth lies between the mouths of the River Plym to the east and Tamar to the west where they flow into the natural harbour of Plymouth Sound. Plymouth Sound is protected by the Breakwater and within it can be found Drake's Island and overlooking it, the historical and world famous Plymouth Hoe and Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse. 

Protected by the Breakwater and the Sutton Harbour Lock Gates you'll discover Plymouth Fisheries.  Found at the heart of historic Plymouth, just a stone's throw from the thriving cafes, restaurants and bars of Sutton Harbour and Plymouth Barbican, known particularly for their menus well-stocked with fresh fish and seafood, and adjacent to the famous National Marine Aquarium.  

Please visit our Experience Sutton Harbour website to find out what's here. You can also apply for a Sutton Harbour Experience Card which will give you at least 10% off most of the participating bars, restaurants and attractions around Sutton Harbour and Plymouth Barbican.

The city of Plymouth has become the first city in the UK to achieve its Blue City Sustainable Seafood Award and we are delighted that most of the Sutton Harbour and Plymouth Barbican cafes and restaurants have contributed to its success. The Fish2fork Blue City award has been created to recognise and highlight communities that use seafood from sustainable sources; just over half of Plymouth’s restaurants have earned a blue fish rating from Fish2fork.


Plymouth Fisheries is only a short stroll from Plymouth Hoe and the city centre, which has undergone much redevelopment of late and is home to Drakes Circus Shopping Centre, the Theatre Royal and Plymouth Pavilions. 

Plymouth Fisheries is easily accessible from the A38 Dual Carriageway or Plymouth Railway and Bus Station. 

Parking is available in Harbour Car Park at the entrance to the fisheries complex. You can book your parking in advance here.
