We enjoyed walking around the edge of the water and reading about the Mayflower and other aspects of Plymouth in England's history as well as America's. Even on a cool, rainy day, it was worth the trip! (Nov. 2017)

This area of Plymouth is spectacular. Especially on a sunny day. Great views of the sea and Plymouth sound. Well worth a visit for an ice cream or just a walk.

On a nice day it's great to walk along the front, or if you have a boat to do the coast by sea, it’s not that bad on a rainy day either.

Idea spot to enjoy views, admire Lido and have a coffee/food. Beautiful vista with Drakes Island, Mountbatten/Turnchapel, sailing and the odd very brave swimmer given the water temp!
