The sheer pleasure of sitting on a bench overlooking the Sound was added to by the the desire to chat by local people. dog lovers delight and the monuments,plus statues were impressive both for their artistic merit and the reason for them.

I'm sure this is a wonderful place, looking out towards Drake Island, unfortunately it was just starting to get dusk, so probably, not the best time.

Beautiful and historic. Lots of statues to famous people associated with Plymouth including Sir Francis Drake and The Beatles and elaborate war memorials. A lighthouse to explore; restaurants and tea rooms. Space for children to scoot around. Barbecues permitted and a view out to the water from Plymouth Hoe.

It doesn't matter what the weather is like the view is always beautiful. Last be having coffee at the open air cafe and just watching the ships come and go.

The Plymouth Hoe runs along the Plymouth sound. On one side is the Plymouth sound, on the other side you find the Citadel. The little island is Drake's Island. There are coffee shops, there is Tapas bar etc

Fantastic body of water where Devon meets Cornwall! Drakes Island and the other inlets make this a fantastic water sport location

Fantastic views and atmosphere. Great ferry trips to Sutton Harbour, Causewell Sands etc. The boat trip around the coast to Devenport, from Mayflower Steps is also worth trying.
