A great place to walk to see the naval warships, sailing boats, cross channel ferries, art deco swimming pool. Great ice cream purveyors and restuarants. A must to visit.

On a sunny day it a great place to stroll along or sit on the grass. Looking onto the protected harbour of the sound and the English Channel and the ships beyond.

We we up on the Hoe overlooking Plymouth Sound, it was quite warm considering it was March out of the wind, it is lovely place to spend time although the hills walking up take it out your legs, lovely views, great for picnics.

A large and busy stretch of water forming one of the largest natural harbours in the UK. great views from the Hoe. Always fine then big happening as yachts, tugs, fishing vessels and even warships travel across your view.

Standing on the Hoe, the views of the Sound are spectacular and a great backdrop. Whereas in some parts of the U.K. there is little to see, here in Plymouth, there are always Naval, Commercial or pleasure craft crossing to the Port.
