Drake Circus Shopping Centre is a 425,000 square feet (39,484 m2) covered shopping mall in the centre of Plymouth, England, which opened in October 2006.
The new building was designed by London-based architects Chapman Taylor and built by Bovis Lend Lease. Situated behind the ruined Charles Church, preserved as the city's civilian war memorial, the building provoked a mixed reception.
