Referred as Hoe, this is huge public space adorned with low limestone cliffs on the seafront. A popular hangout in Plymouth, the Hoe offers a panoramic view of the Plymouth Sound, Drake’s Island, Hamoaze and Mount Edgcumbe.

Hoe literally means a sloping ridge shaped similar to an inverted foot and heel in the Anglo-Saxon dialect. You can visit the Hoe and have a glimpse of warship movements, ferries from Spain and France, sailor and fishermen boats.

The Fastnet yacht race ends at the Hoe and so does the British Firework Championship which attracts around ten thousand spectators.

Plymouth Hoe, Plymouth Reviews - Write a Review

  • A green space on the shore and in the centre of Plymouth. Lots of history and many events take place on the esplanade throughout the year. Great for kids of all ages. There are quiet spaces and cafes around.

  • We visit the How often and always have. The last visit was specifically to see the poppy display at the memorial, spectacular! If you get the chance go at 6pm on a Friday when the have a bugler playing the last post

  • Love the Hoe for its views and the sense of tranquility. A good place to reflect. Made extra special this time by the display of poppies. Have yet to climb the tower....

  • Went to see my great grandfather s name on the war memorial. Both a solemn place and a place of life with people enjoying themselves. This is as it should be.

  • Plymouth hoe is a nice place to go, there is lots to do from just walking, looking at the view out across Plymouth sound, having a meal or just a cup of tea or coffee. Parking can be limited. Some large events are also held up here, British fireworks competition, armed forces weekend, Plymouth bike nights, custom car shows, mega ride to name a few, I do miss the air show that used to happen once a year.
