After owning property in Brittany for nearly 30 years, I have had many ferry trips sailing out and into Plymouth. This is a beautiful stretch of water and I always enjoy looking at the fantastic views, particularly on return trips.

Don't think it has enough safety barriers so children could quite easily fall between the rails I walk the opposite side with the grandchildren you can have lunch coffee easy access to the barbican and west hoe where it is child friendly

Great place for strolling along the seafront, stopping for an ice cream, coffee or lunch or brunch. Lots of water activities available including diving, kayaking, sailing, swimming.

If you are looking for some peace and quiet as I was on this November day amid an open space with terrific sea views then you will not do better than the Hove at this time of year.

I went when it was cold. Personally, its not my scene, much prefer the shops than walk in coastal areas, particularly in cold weather

One of the best natural harbours in England. What ever the weather there is always something to see. The sound is surrounded by historic buildings and fortifications.
