Sutton Harbour

Sutton Harbour lies at the heart of Plymouth old Town. It used to be a fishing harbour (there still is a trawler fleet), but now is mostly used as a marina. The area around the harbour (The Barbican) is a hive of pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants.

The Plymouth Leviathan

A 33-foot sculpture by Brian Fell (LinkExternal link ) (see also Wilberforce House Museum Sculptures ), which was unveiled in 1996, seemingly amalgamated as many kind of sea creatures as it could, as part of an effort to represent the variety fish and shell fish landed on the Barbican. It has a cormorantís feet, a plesiosaurusís tail, the fin of a John Dory, a lobsterís claws and the head of an angler fish. Also known as The Plymouth Prawn.
