“We are so lucky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

I know this is my home, but we are so lucky living here!!!! I never tire of walking around the hoe in any weather, any time of the year. Breakfast on a sunny Sunday morning - perfect. Coffee on a wet and rainy afternoon - glass of wine at sunset. Always something to see and look at and a perfect arena for all the events that we have here.

“It's so lovely I go there nearly every day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

I walk round the Barbican and on up the hill to the Hoe to look out over the Sound nearly every day. Rain or shine, warm or cold I'll be there. It keeps me fit and the view is wonderful! I've seen it the rain, snow, sun; winter, summer, spring, autumn; morning , afternoon and evening. And it never disappoints! In summer the place is busy with families, children on bikes, youths (and the not so young) on skateboards or rollers skates. I've even seen people windsurfing! People take their dogs there for exercise and most are responsible in cleaning up after them. I've seen people practising their circus skills, and a few weeks ago I saw a morris dancing group strutting their stuff. In the winter on a windy day, however I am often the only one up there, but that has it's own charm as well. The stormy skies are not to be missed. Just go there! You will not be disappointed and it's all free. Unless you want a coffee! Or ice-cream etc.

“Stunning Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Saw the Fireworks competition on 2 nights- what a terrific location for this event. Daytime there are great views out over the sound and you can often see Naval Vessels & Large ferries to France &Spain. Some good coffee outlets where you can sit and watch
