Plymouth Hoe

The other day I decided to be a tourist in my own city and walk up to the Hoe which is in the city centre of Plymouth. The Hoe is popular with tourists because it has a great view overlooking the Plymouth Sound, but it is also famous for being the location where Sir Francis Drake had his legendary game of bowls before leaving to defeat the Spanish Armada.
A couple of other well known attractions include Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse which was rebuilt from its original base 14 miles out to sea, and also the Tinside pool, a restored 1935 art deco lido that is filled with natural sea water.
