The lockgate to Sutton Harbour - Plymouth Fisheries


Plymouth Fisheries is located on the south eastern side of Sutton Harbour in the heart of the historic quarter of Plymouth. It is however, very easily accessed via road and is less than 10 minutes from the A38 Devon Expressway. 

This combined with our state or the art electronic auction system makes Plymouth Fisheries at Sutton Harbour an ideal place for fishermen to sell their catch and for purchasers to source their fish requirements from.

Exit the A38 at the Marsh Mills junction and follow the signs for the City Centre. Once on Embankment Road follow signs for the Barbican Leisure Park which will bring you to Lockyers Quay Road which marks the entrance to the Fish Market.

Plymouth Fisheries overlooks Sutton Harbour Marina which sits alongside Sutton Harbour and the historic Plymouth Barbican. 


Access to Sutton Harbour is via a set of double lock gates. The lock is manned 24/7 with access available upon request. There is a freeflow period up to three hours either side of high tide when locking through is not required.
