What can I say apart from breathtaking, I have lived in Plymouth all my life and this is a place I always like to come with my little family. Standing on the hoe and looking out upon plymouth sound I am instantly brought back to being a kid with my grandparents, having the time of my life in the sun and even in the rain , there is so much history here and there is something for any age , if your part of a family with kids or just a couple or Evan on your own give plymouth hoe a chance and see what is can do for you, remember we are Britain's ocean city

Great for watching the large ship traffic or small sailing boats moving about the bay, then can get a coffee nearby to watm up again.

Visiting the Hoe is always a good experience. The blowing gale didn't dampen the trip.

Smeaton's tower was open and some cafes. Others were closed, expected this time of year. There was ample parking spaces for a nice wet walk along the Hoe to the Barbican. Better in the summer months. This time of year draws out the character of the Hoe and provides a different colour dimension to the Sound.

Not just Drake and the Armada, there are lots of memorials to see. A British and Commonwealth Naval Memorial from WW2, Viking, RAF etc. Smeaton lighthouse, tea/coffee shop lot of well kept lawns and the Barbican, lots of benches scattered Around a sensory garden with an unusual model of a giant tortoise. enough to keep anyone busy for a full day.

Plymouth ocean city as it calls itself is a great place to visit with plenty to do for the whole family. Whether its to visit the old Royal William yard that has plenty of places to eat and great architecture or to go shopping in the spacious city centre. And not forgetting the great open sea fronted hoe for a family picnic whilst watching the ships and yachts on the Plymouth sound.
