Plymouth Hoe

Plymouth Hoe

Plymouth Hoe is the natural heart of Plymouth with breath-taking views across Plymouth Sound, one of the most perfect natural harbours in the world, and standing tall on the luscious green-lawned expanse of the Hoe is the iconic Smeaton's Tower lighthouse. Gaze down at the shoreline and you'll see the glorious Art Deco Tinside Lido, open to the public for bathing during the summer months. It is here where Sir Francis Drake, intrepid explorer and local hero, is immortalised in a statue, situated just a few metres from the green where he finished his game of bowls before heading out to defeat the Spanish Armada in 1588.

At the eastern end of the Hoe you'll find The Royal Citadel, the most impressive 17th century fortress in Britain and for many years England's most important defence against attack from the sea. The Citadel has been in constant military occupation since it was built and today it is home to some of Plymouth's modern heroes – the troops of 29 Commando Royal Artillery.

Plymouth Hoe is also host to many fantastic annual events including the famous Plymouth Armed Forces Weekend, MTV Crashes Plymouth and the British Firework Championships.
