Along the Hoe you will view if lucky UK and other Nato Warships possibly anchored in or transitting Plymouth Sound. As you begin your walk to your right rise the impressive walls of... More

Plymouth Hoe on a nice day is a beautiful place to be. The swimming pool, natural rocky shoreline, big open spaces and classic Georgian and Edwardian architecture surrounding it give it a lovely feel, like that place we can all be at peace at. Its only let down are recent cuts to the investment in the area mean flower beds... More

Nice walk around historic Plymouth. The Hoe has superb views and interesting memorials, sadly no bowls club which I would have thought was an essential!

Living in Plymouth allows us to visit the Hoe. It is easy to get to either walking or by car. The views looking out to the breakwater is lovely, seeing the Naval Ships heading in or out from Devonport. There are plenty of Cafe's and Restaurants close by and the Town Center isn't far either. Young and old love this... More

We stayed in an very spacious apartment overlooking the Hoe excellent place for the town centre, walks around the sea front. Visited Plymouth Gin (not to be missed) weather was great we were sat outside eating breakfast at one of the local cafes There was quite a lot of steep paths up from the water front.

Plymouth hoe is so beautiful and lovely for a day out. To side pool is open from May to September where you can swim outdoors in the sunshine or lay and sunbathe all day. There is a big park with children's rides and a smaller adventure park, lots of places to sit and enjoy food and a drink sea front... More

Great place, fantastic views, wide open spaces, lots of places to eat, great for all the family. We all enjoyed the ice-cream vans, the childrens play area, the short walk to the waterfront with fish n chips, small quaint shops, even a lovely book shop.

This is a great place to have a walk and to enjoy the scenery of such a historic coastline. Enjoy a coffee and take in the view or an ice cream.

I first came here by accident in 1999. My then partner - despite the constant wind - fell in love with it. We spent many rainy/sunny/windy days milling around and enjoying the view. I am now married and love revisiting The How and Smeatons Tower. Memories flood back and it keeps me warm against the incoming sea breeze! A place... More
