Have a walk on the Hoe, look out to sea and watch the boats and ferries going about their business. Visit the War Memorial to understand the huge loss of life that the Navy suffered during the war. Climb Smeaton's Tower or have something to eat. A great historical site!

Always a pleasure to stand on the Hoe and survey Plymouth Sound, Mount Edgcumbe, Dakes Island and the famous Smeaton' Tower all from the same spot! Fresh air superb views and it's free. Always makes me feel lucky to live in Plymouth and proud to be a Janner. Unique place!

This area has everything and is well managed. On a previous trip we enjoyed a great firework display on New Year's Eve. As in many other places, the biggest hurdle to the enjoyment of the area is the difficulty in finding a parking space - and then having to pay for it - something we are not used to in... More

They where great. Very busy though!! That was due to the occasion. I would reccommend going to the Hoe if you are wanting a lovely walk along the seafront. You can hear the waves and in the summer there are always ice cream vans ready for an ice cream :)
