There is a large area given over to war memorials which reflect Plymouth's historic naval/marine presence. It is the perfect place to look out to sea watching ferrys and naval vessels.

Plymouth Hoe is Plymouth's most prized asset, more so than Francis Drake, The Mayflower, Pilgrim Fathers or it's historic Barbican area.

Having lived most of my life in Plymouth, I felt that it was only right and normal, to review and discuss the delights of Plymouth Hoe. So what is Plymouth Hoe?

The views are just amazing, both on sunny days and not so sunny days, although on sunnier days it is ALOT more busier. Whether it is a walk along the seafront or a visit to Smeaton's Tower, Plymouth Hoe is a landmark and one not to be missed! Plymouth Hoe's main attraction, that it is most ...
