The Civic Centre, Plymouth

Plymouth Civic Centre is a former principal administrative centre of Plymouth, Devon, England. Opened in 1962, the building was used by Plymouth City Council until it was sold for development in 2015. It has been Grade II Listed since 2007.

The Civic Centre is a fourteen-storey tower block, with a ‘butterfly’ roof canopy and an attached two-storey block to the north. The tower housed the offices of the various municipal departments. The top storey of the tower was originally the Rooftop Restaurant, which was open to the public and closed in 1975. The adjoining two-storey building Council House has a number of committee rooms, a council chamber, reception room and the Lord Mayor’s suite.Plymouth Civic Centre is a former principal administrative centre of Plymouth, Devon, England.

After a very early start and the largest coffee that Costa sold, we were in Britain’s favourite seaside town of Plymouth. Having only recently heard of this building I didn’t really know what to expect. One of the people I did it with used to live down that way, so he was clued up and even knew a way in having been a few weeks prior.

The building itself it pretty stripped inside sadly. That being said, I think even when this building was in use it would have been pretty bland and uninteresting inside due to what it was used for…
