Struggling for gift ideas this year? Take a stroll along the cobbles of The Barbican and visit the newly re-furbished Tourist Information Centre & Mayflower Museum Shop. Our gift shop has a wide range of locally made products, confectionary and local interest books offering the perfect presents for locals and visitors.

From a Devon jigsaw puzzle to a delicious chocolate pasty, our shelves have plenty of novelty gifts that are fun for all the family! Deck the halls with our charming hand-made felt decorations - will it be a snowman or a seagull hanging on your tree this year? Browse our stocking-fillers, perhaps a telescope for a young explorer or a fishy fun game for those that love the sea.

Get cosy by the fire and unwind with a book from our large literature collection, ideal for children, budding historians and nature-lovers. Whether it’s learning local facts or telling spooky stories on a cold winter’s night – we’ve got you covered this Christmas! Need some ideas to work off that Christmas dinner? Be inspired to burn off those mince pies with titles featuring walking, cycling and even wild swimming.

Discover our range of locally-crafted products including Plymouth Tea, Kernow Chocolate, Mewstone candles hand-made in Ermington and delightful hand-made jewellery from Stockwell ceramics in Saltash. Unwrapping a naughty Beryl Cook diary will certainly bring a cheeky smile to granny’s face! Our gifts are sent all over the world to offer a little reminder of home for relatives far away, so don’t forget to pop in to purchase your gifts in time to catch the Christmas post.

Make a day of it! Once you’ve finished your Christmas shopping, why not visit the Mayflower Museum? Discover more about the voyage of the Pilgrims in our family-friendly exhibition, open this winter Monday to Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays at 10am-4pm.

There is plenty to discover, explore and browse so tick off your shopping list and spoil them locally this Christmas!

And if you can’t make it to the Tourist Information Centre in person, you can shop online from the comfort of your own home. Just head to the Visit Plymouth online shop and browse to your heart’s content.
