This is an incredible location, that is so close to the city. It is free, it is spacious and the sea views are fantastic. It's a brilliant place for a picnic,education, stroll or laze. I can't think of any city in the world that has this on its doorstep. This is for all to enjoy and costs absolutely nothing .... More

Idea location to go to any time but Sundays less busy. Beautiful sea views and lovely atmosphere. Kids can run wild whilst you sit and relax or have a picnic. However all that fresh air can make you tired.

Nearby are the famous steps where in 1621 the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World (USA). The Hoe has the landmark Smeaton's Tower a former lighthouse dating from Victoria times and open to the public. It is... More

One of the best sea views you will ever see. Packed with history from the staue of Drake to the naval war memorial to the sacrifices of two world wars, the RAF aircrew memorial and memorials of earlier wars. There's the great citadel nearby built during the English civil war and Smeaton's Tower, the lighthouse brought back stone by stone... More

Plymouth is where I was born and bred and yet every time I visit Plymouth Hoe, which is often, I am still astounded by the view. Sadly the Plymouth Eye (the wheel in this picture) is no longer with us, but there is always something to be doing on Plymouth Hoe. Swimming, children's play park, walk along the sea front... More
