My last visit here was to Armed Forces Day 2015 which was absolutely packed with visitors from start to finish. Regular event such as this are frequent throughout the year, and even without a special event on, I highly recommend a visit to take in the various memorials sited along the Hoe, and to take in the stunning views that...

Great place to wonder, photograph, meet people and generally be in. A lovely place to be on a sunny day and a really lovely landmark for Plymouth.

The Hoe is primarily a large area of grassed and flower beds that contour the natural cliff and has magnificent views across Plymouth Sound. It is where Sir Francis Drake supposedly played bowls waiting for the Spanish Amada to said up the sound. Fantastic views across the sea, and landscape countryside over in Torpoint where there are a couple of... More

On a sunny and warm day the Hoe can be the location where you spend the majority of the day as it has lovely seating space on both benches and the grass for those who are lucky enough not to have hay fever ;) It caters well for those who come hungry with a variety of cafes and restaurants in...

There is so much to do. We parked up at West Hoe and visited the play area. Just 50p a ride. Continued along the sea front towards the Barbican. We got immersed in the variety of shops aquarium and boat trips. Finding a small tea room in New Street. Then back up to the Hoe promenade.

Ideal spot for beautiful sea views whether walking along the coastal road or sitting in a parked car along the seafront. Many charming sea front restaurants with wonderful sea views. Spectacular panoramic dartmoor/sea views from Smeaton's lighthouse tower is a must. The two day annual fireworks competition displays in August are so brilliant to watch. Highly recommended sea front.

Had a very nice walk around the bay followed by lunch and a beer or two. On a good day it was amazing, on a stormy day it was fantastic. It is worth a visit on both types of days and with cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance it makes the day perfect. Did not find anything to complain... More

Plymouh Hoe is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Such lovely views, fresh sea air, plenty of amazing restaurants & bars. A lovely place to walk. Some amazing events are organised here - a great venue. The annual Fireworks Festival in August is a must.
