I love the Hoe it has so many nooks and crannies from old to new I could spend hours walking around. When I have my nieces its a must to ride on the Gus Hunnybun train and have an ice cream.

A place you should not miss in Plymouth where is suitable for children, pets and adults. Also should not miss visiting the top of Smeaton's Tower where 360 degree view of Plymouth is amazing.
