The finest views over the town and Plymouth Sound are to be had from Plymouth Hoe, often referred to as simply the Hoe. This spacious park opened in 1817 and is traversed by the Promenade, and extends past Drake's Island as far as the lighthouse on Eddystone Rock, 14 miles away.

It's also where you'll find the Armada Monument, erected in 1888 and decorated with the coats of arms of the towns that helped in the struggle against the Spanish. The nearby massive Naval War Memorial is worth a look, as is the Sir Francis Drake Statue.

Also in the Hoe, the upper part of Smeaton's Tower–parts of which were taken from the original 18th-century lighthouse once located offshore–is open as a viewing platform. Be prepared to tackle the 93 steps of the tower, including steep ladders, to the lantern room for the lovely views. If you're here in August, try to coincide a visit with the annual British Fireworks Championship, an event that draws huge crowds from across the country.

Be sure to also spend a little time wandering West Hoe Park, on the westernmost tip of the Hoe, that's popular with families for its kid-friendly rides and miniature railway.

Address: 4 Osborne Place, Plymouth, Devon
