If you are looking for some peace and quiet as I was on this November day amid an open space with terrific sea views then you will not do better than the Hove at this time of year.

I went when it was cold. Personally, its not my scene, much prefer the shops than walk in coastal areas, particularly in cold weather

One of the best natural harbours in England. What ever the weather there is always something to see. The sound is surrounded by historic buildings and fortifications.

A must if you visit Plymouth for a lovely walk along the foreshore. There is always something to watch, naval ships, ferry boats and fishermen. People strolling looking at the view, little cafes and free toilets on the promenade and West Hoe.
