This is a delightful place, with plenty of open space incorporating a large tarmac area, paths and grass to walk on, or where one can just sit and enjoy the superb views over Plymouth Sound. There are a variety of places close by offering good food and drink. At certain times of the year various events are staged here.

We had a lovely wander around the Hoe. Relaxed atmosphere with some quirky shops, views of the harbour and lots of choices of places to have a drink or grab something to eat. There is plenty of parking and prices are reasonable.

This is THE place to go if you plan to visit Plymouth. The Hoe is a stretch of land atop the cliffs, within a 10 minute walk of the city centre, with 180 degree views over the Devon and Cornish coast.

Had a lovely time with my family strolling Plymouth Hoe. Originally started as lunch at The Waterfront restaurant, on West Hoe but such a nice sunny Saturday afternoon, we decided to walk off the meal by strolling around the Hoe towards the Barbican, then back again to the Waterfront.

Beautiful scenery and amazing place to have a picnic. Amazing for dog walks and great for young children to take their scooters up. Clean and Smeatons tower is a great attraction too. Not too overpriced and plenty of amenities.

I regularly visit the hoe on a Sunday morning with my son for a stroll and to get some fresh air. Nice open space for cycling, running, roller skating etc. Plenty of places on the front to grab a coffee and an ice cream for the kids, even in the middle of winter. Parking is free before 10am in most... More
