Lovely views of the iconic Smeatons tower lighthouse. Set up your pose as per the Beatles iconic photo of this from the past akin to the Abbey Road photo of the group! Well worth a visit.

Not exactly the most exciting part of Plymouth, but steeped in History. Nice on a good weather day, avoid on a windy or wet day.

We live in Plympton and often visit the Hoe with and without our dog. Lovely area with great views, cafes etc. A must do/see if you visit the town.

I will never forget my first sight of Plymouth Hoe. It is stunning. To rival anywhere in the world. It was more than 30 years ago. I was on holiday then. Now I live here and still find the Hoe a wonderful place to visit. It is even better now. There are lovely little cafe's to visit along the sea... More

Best place in the city, with the lighthouse, the big park, the monuments, the walk on the coast to reach the harbour and the Barbican, and the open-air swimming pool, everything in one place! The place to be, l'endroit de la ville à ne pas rater car tout y est réuni! (vues, marches, parc, monuments etc)

It is beautiful. I don't need to recommend this place as everyone who comes to Plymouth goes to the Hoe.

Plenty to do. Boat rides, food places, plenty of bars and coffee shops, art galleries, aquarium, a good place for picnics.

It had proved very easy to get there from the centre, up through gardens and past some grand buildings one of which is a hotel. The views from it's upper rooms must be unrivalled. Then the whole opened up onto the historic area with a lighthouse as a bonus. Then past that. What a view of Plymouth Sound dotted with... More

Lots of vantage points around the coast line, particularly pleasant in the evening. Photogenic. Good feeling of openness, though not far to walk from the city centre
