Plymouth Hoe is one of the great natural views. A short walk from the City Centre, the view out to sea when you crest onto the promenade is panoramic and breathtaking, especially at sunrise/sunset. The Hoe (as it's known locally), is steeped in history and there are many memorials to look at. There are cafe's and the Barbican area is... More

The lighthouse there was built in 1759 and is run by English Heritage which is always worth a visit. The entire area is well maintained with statues of Francis Drake and the Spanish Armada memorial as well as the Plymouth war memorial (which is identical to those also found in Chatham and Portsmouth). A fantastic view of the Sound where... More

Excellent! safe but scary for me - not for her! she looked after her 62 year old great-aunt very well. Nice touch with the sticker for... More

Spent a wonderful sunny day exploring the Hoe - great history (love Sir Francis Drake). Old forts, happy families and stunning vistas - a great place to spend an afternoon. Our boys were sad they did not bring a football but still plenty to do. The little cafe (on the ocean side across from the lighthouse) had good coffee and... More

It's fll of history and a great place to explore. grab an icecream and a run around on the grass. Take a kite or just sit and watch the boats come in. If you felling brave, try the Plymouth Eye for aSeagulls view of the City and the Coast
