This is the place to stand and gaze out across a busy, bustling sea, dotted with historical features and offering the best possible view of one of the most interesting working ports in the UK. There are plenty of places to get refreshments, most offering...More

The Hoe is well presented, clean and tidy. There were motorbikes and loads of people. However I went to the sea front with a book and enjoyed the sun, waves and relaxation!

We visited the Plymouth Hoe at the end of March. Even though it was raining and quite windy it was worth the visit. Excellent view and quite close to the Mayflower steps and the harbour. We also visited the lighthouse. Recommended to visit.

Awesome open space on the very front of the City, with majestic vistas around Plymouth Sound with its Fort & Breakwater, and the distant Eddystone Lighthouse. Well wort a wander down and around.

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!
