There are various plaques in this area that give a little information about ships leaving here to the New World and later Australia and NZ. There is also a recent archway where you can take photos, but it was not the original spot where the ships left from. Would take about 15 minutes to read all the plaques. After that, it is worth a walk, up the slope, to the sea front for the view, and where you can continue to walk to the Hoe. The area next to the Steps called the Barbican has many eateries and shops, which is useful for a lunch stop after the walk. There is an Aquarium nearby also - but did not have time to have a look inside.
