The Hoe is just a ten minute walk up from the centre of town and is well worth the visit. It was from here that Sir Francis Drake espied the approaching Spanish Armada. Now you can savour a magnificent seascape as a myriad of ships...More

Clean, wide open and just so relaxing. Love walking around the area taking in the views and reading the memorials. It's a must visit area if you are in the city.

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!
