As usual, visiting Plymouth Hoe is a wonderful experience. Despite the large amount of work that gas to be done to repair the storm damage done during the course of last winter, the Hoe remains breathtakingly beautiful.

Take a steady stroll up from the Barbican, the lighthouse and memorials are well worth a look. There are some fantastic views over the sound, which also has The Lido, an impressive Art Deco swimming pool. Plenty of places to stop for an ice cream, coffee or something stronger. If you're not troubled by vertigo, a trip on the Plymouth... More

A lovely view in good weather and exciting if there are rough seas. Many good cafes and restaurants. Several interesting monuments. You may well be lucky and see the ferry or Naval ships coming in and out of the Sound.

The war memorial is very impressive, the Hoe is fantastic and during the sun pretty busy with people enjoying the views and nice weather.

On Easter weekend, we walked along Plymouth Hoe in the rain - there wasn't anything to do really , everything was fenced off due to "storm damage". Most of the cafes/coffee shops were in the open - so no where much to have a coffee in the dry. Perhaps not the best day to visit.

Whatever your age, you can always find something to interest you on Plymouth Hoe. There is Smeatons Lighthouse to go up and parks and pools to go down to. You can just sit and enjoy the views and if you are lucky, you may see the odd warship or submarine sailing through Plymouth Sound to Devonport. There are boat rides... More

I've live in Plymouth all my live and I can honestly say, that the view from the hoe always makes me smile. It doesn't matter if your there in the mid's of winter and the winds blowing or bathing in the sunshine in high summer there is always something to watch or do. A climb up the famous Smeaton tower...

Whenever I can I love to spend a few days in Plymouth and, always, as near to the Hoe as possible. The Hoe and the Barbican are definitely Plymouth's prime attractions. Nothing beats waking up in the morning and looking out across Plymouth Sound and Drake's Island. The Hoe is, literally, a breath of fresh air and totally unadulterated. On... More
