Always a thrill to see, ever changing vista of sailing boats, and larger vessels, plenty of space for walking, and energetic children with no traffic problems!

Went over to Cawsands, Cornwall on the ferry. It was great views on the clear day we chose and Cawsands is a lovely place. Not a lot there, but fab icecream an the pub was very friendly and had a good menu, although we didn't eat there.

Always a joy to visit with spectacular views, particularly during the British Fireworks Championships in August. There is so much going on - boats, yachts, ships - all moving around and adding to the excitement.

A lovely place to look out on when on Plymouth Hoe. You can also get boat trips that go up the Tamar to Calstock and also shorter trips.
