A very historic place and has some beautiful memorial plaques. A small piece of history. Nice to combine a walk around the harbour.

It is one of many lil spot in the Britain's Ocean city, to grab the view of the harbour and during summer to start your walk along the coast.

Part of our history, although there isn't a lot to see other than the steps and a plaque in the pathway.

Great history with lots of Plaques showing who left from the steps and what parts of the world were discovered by them. Anywhere else this would be a great tourist attraction. In Plymouth its just a bunch of unkept steps but great history.

Not that clearly marked and we nearly missed the small area with writing on the floor and a little veranda where you could see where the steps are now no longer there. Expected more history details at the site.
