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 Reviews & Ratings
I love this place. Plymouth Hoe has the most beautiful views over Plymouth Sound. In all weathers this is a great place to visit. There are coffee shops and bars and restaurants or you could just pack a picnic. The play park is perfect for children.
Beautiful place. Is my first trip to Plymouth with my family and we really enjoy every minute. A lot of things to do even if you with small child. Boat trip, aquarium, restaurants and bars everything walking distance. Great food, nice drinks with gorgeous view. Definitely will come back !!!
Just a day visit,it was sunny and, very busy motorcycle gathering attracting plenty of people. Had a lovely ice cream down at the end of the cobbled streets. Recommended.
Just a great place to walk around in the sunshine, especially in the evening when the car park is closed. Our son was able to skateboard and we just enjoyed the views. Just a lovely place. 👍
Always come here as it's local to me. Absolutely beautiful views of the sea and an amazing open pool as well which is amazing in the summer. I also always come here to get some photos for my social media as the backgrounds are amazing and there is so much up here to get creative with if your a photographer or videographer.
