I regularly visit the hoe on a Sunday morning with my son for a stroll and to get some fresh air. Nice open space for cycling, running, roller skating etc. Plenty of places on the front to grab a coffee and an ice cream for the kids, even in the middle of winter. Parking is free before 10am in most... More

This is a massive plateau overlooking Plymouth Sound. I was there for the eclipse in 1999, along with thousands of others. Summertime sees open-air concerts here, and the annual firework competition is best seen from the Hoe.

Beautiful public space set by the English Channel. The lighthouse is obviously the main attraction and a photo-stop.

On a clear crisp day the view is stunning, take a look at the Royal Navy ship sailing to who knows where, and the Brittany Ferry heading for Spain.

You won't find a better setting than the Hoe, absolutely stunning with views of drakes island and out to Plymouth sound. Came back from Santander on the ferry on a dull and horrible day, but my spirits were lifted when I saw the fabulous sight of Smeatons tower and the Hoe, there really is nowhere better. It's a lovely walk... More
