Lovely views overlooking plymouth harbour warships from all nations could be at anchor at any time. Best but thought provoking was the many monuments to british and commonwealth service men and women of all branches of service. Take a walk and read the names.

It is beautiful place to visit and have a lovely walk on a sunny day. Wear comfortable shoes and outfits to be able to roam around easily. It is a nice visit to such historical place

Had a lovely walk around on Saturday morning after an absence from the city of 20 years. Relaxed cafes with wonderful views across the sound. The lido looks amazing. It would get five stars but I couldn't see if there were any public toilets.

Plymouth Hoe is easily accessible from the centre. It is worth a visit to soak in history and naval stories. It has seen may sights and battles and it is atmospheric.

Typically the Hoe is well kept and monitored, and is rarely unclean. There's a decent range of places to sit whether benching or going for a picnic. Most crucial for me though is that it remains an artery for many of Plymouth's big events, such...More

A summer at the Hoe: barbecues beside Smeaton Tower overlooking the wonderful sea views. A large space for ball games, picnics and a walk. Great space for families and friends, skateboards, bikes, roller blades, near plenty of refreshments and facilities.

What a lovely thing to do, and yes the Hoe is well lighted and very safe for cycling as there are various traffic calming measures preventing the lunatics from spoiling your time there. Enjoy!

No idea as Remembrance Sunday was so busy, but I would imagine so being such a high profile location
