I didn’t expect much and I wasn’t disappointed. A large expanse of tarmac plus a monument over looking the sea. No disrespect to those commemorated, but it’s not a highlight.

Lovely fun fair and great fireworks. Great views out to sea during the day and the lights are pretty at night. The old lighthouse looks great lit up at night.

Best firework show you will ever see and completely free - bring cash if you want to do the fair, or buy food and drink, or just something to sit on if you want to watch the UK best firework companies battle it out with...More

Lovely view of Plymouth Sound with stuff to do to entertain kids - bring bike or scooter for some fun whizzing around on the big stretch of traffic-free tarmac. Visit Smeaton’s Tower, and the Lido.

I would advise to stay away from the Hoe! They have fairground rides etc. You can view the fireworks from mountbatton, devils point or jennycliff. Wherever you choose to go, get there early, it gets very busy x

What a lovely thing to do, and yes the Hoe is well lighted and very safe for cycling as there are various traffic calming measures preventing the lunatics from spoiling your time there. Enjoy!
