“Great views”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Smeaton's tower is worth a look, you can go inside and see how it used to work, climb the winding stairs for a great view. To think they moved it here brick by brick...

“Worth a look”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Costs a couple of quid to get in and take a look around and is well worth the effort. There is a little museum and great views.

“Great little visit”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Always recommend this on a sunny day. The hoe itself is a great location and in smeatons tower you are able to go up to the top and see the views out to sea and learn more about the life of the tower

“what a view”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Just a stroll away from the Barbican and then onto the Hoe.
This original Eddystone lighthouse rebuilt on the hoe is open to the public. If you are scared of heights just take time to stroll the lawns and rest awhile to take in the vista

“Check the view”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Smeaton's Tower, when it's open is worth the climb up the winding staircase for the view alone. Fantastic views over one of the best natural harbours in the world. For added interest you get to see how the keepers lived and maintained the light
