Came to Plymouth for a couple of days break and thoroughly enjoying ourselves, a great walk along the seafront watching the boats come and go whilst munching away a On an ice cream bought from one of the many vendors along this stretch.

Plymouth is a lovely historic place which suprised me at every turn. The Hoe is a beautiful place with panoramic views and the lido is brilliant on a sunny day. We went up Smeatons tower and had tapas in Maritimos bar which is right in the cliff on the sea front, will definately be going back!

Stunning location. Excellent for relaxing and stepping out of the buzz and noise of a city. We sat on the rocks facing the sea, took some photos and watched the boats. Seagulls were adding an extra touch of magic to the scenery. Totally recommend it and trully worths a visit!

Walk along the hoe with amazing far reaching views, go up Smeatons Tower if you have a head for heights, I was fine until we got to the top and then had a freak out!! Went down to the amusements and rode the train ~ring the bell all the way around! I dont know how the lovely lady who runs... More

What a wonderful day we had walking along the ocean side. The Hoe is a perfect combination of historic sites and natural beauty. There is much to see and do for the family or the lone traveler

We are at the best place for kids where a ride on guss Honey bun is only 50p a ride as is the bouncy castle. There are other rides at the same & toucan even get hot food & drinks. It really is exceptional value for money. If the kids are happy do are the parents.

Can't beat the view from here! Toilets available and various food outlets and lots of grass and benches for picnicking. Plenty to see and not far to walk to the big play park at West Hoe if the kids get restless. Just watch out for bikes, skateboards and scooters on the promenade - no cars allowed but people do zip...

The Hoe is a place you must see if in Plymouth, great views. However it is historic with the war memorial, remember all the sailors killed in the last world war against the Germans ensuring we are free, even if they are trying to take over Europe by the back door. thank goodness for Brexit..
