Plymouth Hoe, Plymouth

4.7
Known locally as the Hoe, Plymouth Hoe is a public space on the coast with views of the sound, island, and Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall. The water that hugs the coast is always bustling with sailboats, fishing trawlers, and ferries in transit from Spain and France. Take a look at the Smeaton's Tower, or what was once the top portion of the Eddystone Lighthouse, where a statue of Sir Francis Drake was erected in 1884. Hotels flank the coastline, and restaurants are scattered around the area. Check the online event calendar before setting out to the Hoe. Events are frequent, and you may catch a fireworks competition or a boat race. Make Plymouth Hoe part of your personalized Plymouth itinerary using our Plymouth trip maker .
