The Plymouth Hoe and the barbican area is really worth a visit. The views are not only spectacular but there are lovely seafood restaurants all around, including cute pubs and live music. Surely the prettiest place in the whole of Plymouth. The camera doesn't lie!

Absolutely worth the walk up there - gorgeous views both in summer and winter. Smeaton's tower is good fun to climb up and taking the scenic route to the Barbican is lovely. Don't miss this!

I like the. Hoe and may come up too often. I have frequently wondered the purpose of the long wide stretch of Tarmac now used for military parades, marathon finishes and occasional outdoor gigs. When not covered in skate boarders or season fairgrounds, or during the last couple of weeks, back to back non-stop graduation ceremonies, I imagine that it... More

This is a must-see spot as you can stand where Drake stood as he first spotted the Armada approaching. I loved the Drake statue, the spacious lawns, beautiful terrace of houses behind, wonderful views and places to sit.
