As a local, I have often forgotten that we have such a wonderful location right on the doorstep. Have resolved to visit more often and appreciate the magnificent views from this lovely place. If we lived in a landlocked city we would crave the likes of The Hoe.

I know this is my home, but we are so lucky living here!!!! I never tire of walking around the hoe in any weather, any time of the year. Breakfast on a sunny Sunday morning - perfect. Coffee on a wet and rainy afternoon - glass of wine at sunset. Always something to see and look at and a perfect... More

Lovely spot on a sunny day when viewed from the Hoe. Fabulous arena for the National Fireworks Championships in August.

I walk round the Barbican and on up the hill to the Hoe to look out over the Sound nearly every day. Rain or shine, warm or cold I'll be there. It keeps me fit and the view is wonderful! I've seen it the rain, snow, sun; winter, summer, spring, autumn; morning , afternoon and evening. And it never disappoints!... More

Saw the Fireworks competition on 2 nights- what a terrific location for this event. Daytime there are great views out over the sound and you can often see Naval Vessels & Large ferries to France &Spain. Some good coffee outlets where you can sit and watch

One of the most beautiful harbours in the world. Gives some of the others a real run for their money especially on a stormy day with the clouds across the Breakwater and the yachts......one bit of unusual fun...watching the dolphins escorting the submarines out of the Sound...what do they know that we don't ?

If you live in Plymouth and you are reading this, you are so lucky to see this view everyday, a stunning natural harbour, noted though that the kids swimming all wore wet suits, wise, presume it's a bit chilly, though this is not a beach resort after all. Does have a stunning open air swimming pool a stroll along the... More
