Just go there and enjoy the view from different points. One can see yatchs, ships, people basking in sun....having British tea....nice view of sea in front. Limit less ocean, strong cold air, bird chirping in the background. Good place to be with family.

We enjoyed the Plymouth Hoe so much! It is a pleasant walking area with good restaurants, beautiful scenery, nice historical landmarks. Will definitely recommend it as a relaxing vacation spot.

Visited it twice, once in the rain, once in the sun, lovely both times. Very quiet when we visited. Well worth spending time looking around the monuments.

I went here to the Hoe and around Plymouth and its beautiful with wonderful views and harbour and I have been here many times but this time thought I would write a review. It has eating places and its a romantic place to be especially at night. It has tranquility when you need it and adventure and it has culture... More

The Hoe in Plymouth is a must, some small attractions, cafe's etc. Smeatons tower if you are fit and of course the war memorial. there is a large fireworks display on the mole (check dates on internet) each year but the greatest pleasure of all is looking at the view across the harbour.

You can't cme to Plymouth and not visit the Hoe. Spectacular in all weathers. There are places to eat and drink within walking distance and it's easy to find. Just stop someone and ask. Everyone knows where it is.

Lovely historic area, climbing up the famous landmark of Smeaton Tower is well worth the view of the Plymouth Sound! Great choice of restaurants and there is nothing but pleasure in sitting with a drink looking over The Sound on a sunny evening! Parking can be limited and expensive.
