We wanted to at least see the Hoe as I had never been even though I had been in business a few times. We looked over and out to sea and spotted a submarine going out. We were thrilled. One of the locals said that the impressing site of destroyers and frigates moving was better but we were still happy

The Hoe is clean, great for walks and sea views, lots going on, coffee shop and cafe, nice gardens, lots of green space, lovely trees and grass to both sit on and play on. Great for History, love the lighthouse which is well lit at night. .

Highlight of my visits to Plymouth as a child and still love to climb to the top and enjoy the view. Historically interesting as it was here Drake was playing bowls when he heard of the approaching Spanish Armada.

I have visited Plymouth Hoe over the last four years when I am working there, and the view never fails to impress me. It is a welcome respite from the crowds and noise of the city centre and perfect for watchimg the world go by. You can also witness the Royal Navy on manoeuveres and other vessels sailing past.

One of my favourite places to sit and watch the world go by. Watching the bustle of fishing boats and yachts plus the occasional navy ship. The iconic lighthouse is still kept in great condition. It was encouraging to see the number of families out together, playing ball, roller blading or just walking the dog. On this visit there was... More

The Barbican and the Hoe are wonderful and I'm so glad I live in Plymouth. The views over the Sound towards Cornwall are lovely, the little cafes are great and Cap'n Jaspers serves tea and coffee for £1 what more can you ask for

Glorious views and easy walking, the Hoe links the port and town. There are a lot of steps up but I believe there is a ramp somewhere.
