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.

I was here late Afternoon. Lots of people relaxing and enjoying themselves, but despite all the people it was still quite relaxing with some great views, and always good to get some sea air into the lungs

From warships going and coming into Plymouth Sound to numerous yachts and boats scattered across the water, there is always something to see…

Sit on a bench overlooking the sea. Beautiful on a sunny day, watch the boats come and go, nice area to chill out.

What can be better than walking along the Hoe front and looking over Plymouth Sound. Usually lots going on shipping and fishing boats, the breakwater and drake's island, overlooking Mount Edgcumbe. A place to sit and relax and watch the word go by

Fantastic walks around here and the views are great. Lots of cafes to sit and drink and a little further on is quite a few pubs.
