It was brilliant for big public events like the radio 1 roadshow and music concerts. But a very cold blustery place in the winter. Best time to visit is in the summertime when there is a big public event on free for all ages to enjoy!

This place holds special memories from my time as a Royal Marines Commando when in 1983 my eldest daughter who now lives in NWS Australia took her first infant steps, visited here with my brother who took hold after the first few steps. A special town with special memories.

The views are spectacular come rain or shine. No cost to see all you need to see including the Naval Memorial and the outside of the Light House (a small charge to enter).

Just stand here and look out to sea, your imagination will take you away to times past. You are surrounded by the spirits of the past Sir Francis Drake, John Hawkins and the like. You can walk in their footsteps on the Historic Barbican a short distance from the Hoe.
