If you want to sit by the sea, watch the tides and the various ships moving to and fro - what better place than The Hoe. Get your fish and chips from West Hoe Fryers and eat them by Tinside pool. Brilliant!!!

Love this place. Whether rain or shine , it gives a different feel everytime I am there. All year round there is something to do. Plus different weathers you get different scenery.

Excellent view. Don't expect "kiss me quick" hats or the like. Not really commercialised at all. Just a lovely place to gaze out to sea and contemplate the world. A short walk to the Barbican or the City Centre.

There is a great big open space with wonderful views and plenty of room to run about away from traffic. Always an ice cream van on the road below - 'till late.

This must be the best view in the whole of Britain There are plenty of cafes and ice cream sellers. On hot days you can sit on the grass and soak in the view and watch what goes on in the sea

Plymouth Hoe is an amazing place steeped in history with phenomenal views. There are restaurants for all occasions from weddings and special occasions to the great fish and chips. The Hoe itself has Smeatons Tower which can be visited in the warmer months and when you get to the top you can look out across the water and see Drakes... More

Plymouth Hoe gives unforgettable views of Devon, Cornwall and Plymouth Sound. The Hoe is a good place for a picnic with room for children to play and if family friendly. In the summer months, there are several events e.g. Firework championships and boat races so the Hoe gives excellent views for these events.
