Nice views and a great place for a picnic. Can get busy in the summer and sometimes has events on. Good views of plymouth sound out to the breakwater and an ideal place to watch the national fireworks championships but get there early

Scenic. The Hoe's natural beauty worked its magic on me. From the statues and monuments to the coastline.

The area is a short distance from the High Street and is well kept with the grass and plants in excellent condition. It is a lovely place to sit and take in the stunning sea views. The centre piece is a well preserved lighthouse and there is a good promenade to just stroll along and enjoy the tranquility. We snacked... More

Great open spaces showing great views, nice places to sit and just people watch, some lovely cafes down on the seafront. Just a short stroll into town. Makes Plymouth a worthy place to visit.

It is said that this is the only place on earth where you can see the Sound. A natural harbour that has been a major naval port since Elizabethan times and where even the small island bears the Drake name. Not really too commercialized but there are some good eateries and a famous lighthouse.

Plymouth Hoe is definitely worth the Hype. A brilliant place to visit no matter what age you are, with kids or without kids. I spent a huge part of my childhood up on the Hoe. The Lido was a popular choice for many. It has been redeveloped in a big way in recent years. The views are out of this... More

Plymouth Hoe conjures up images of Sir Francis Drake defeating the Spanish Armada and standing on the hoe looking out into Plymouth Sound takes you back five hundred years. The statue of Sir Francis Drake dominates the hoe as he looks seaward with the first Eddystone lighthouse now firmly planted on dry land. You can walk up the lighthouse for... More

A great place to hang out and watch the world go by. Spent a lovely afternoon watching the boats come in and out of the harbours: fishing vessels, sail boats, destroyer, ferry; explored the light-house too (worth the climb). Good bit of people watching too: children rolling down the grass, people flying stunt kites, students just hanging out and a... More
