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
