We love Plymouth itself which has so much history so thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Hoe with it's wealth of past history but you need to be reasonably fit to access everything as it's very hilly roundabout the Hoe and the Hoe itself.

The iconic old lighthouse Smeatons tower is a must for views as long as you don't mind heights Beautiful area not surrounded by high rise buildings and just far enough away from town centre to be relaxing but close enough if you also want to shop.

The Hoe is a great place to relax with a picnic or for a walk about. Plenty of space for everyone of any age. Lovely views looking out across the sea. Smeatons lighthouse is quaint and worth a visit. Disabled parking right up near the sea front so it's ideal.

A lovely place to sit and watch the boats on the Sound. We recommend a picnic or just sitting and soaking up the rays!

Went here just because it is so beautiful. Stunning sea views & some interesting architecture. Plenty of space for walking dogs & playing children. Close to several historic & war memorials, lighthouse, ferris wheel, aquarium & plenty of eateries. Just to have a beautiful walk along the Hoe is a great way to while away as much or as little...

My husband took me for a stroll along the Hoe to reminisce about his youth. The views were stunning, what a beautiful place for an afternoon stroll. There was a huge variety of people milling around taking in the views, having a coffee in the shop or watching the sun go down on the rocks. If in Plymouth a visit... More
