  • We can not build a tribute as great as the debt we owe the people listed on the monument but this is an almost worthy homage. The bronze plaques and adornments set on pale stone make a fitting centerpiece for remembrance services. It is also some where pleasant to sit and contemplate.
  • What a great place to visit and spend the day. Weather was superb. Wow such an interesting site
  • It's very poignant and makes you think about all those who lost their lives. I recently found my great great grandfathers name on one of the plaques.
  • This is the main memorial for those that did not return from the 1st and 2nd World Wars. It sits atop Plymouth Hoe and there are views to Plymouth Sound to the South and Plymouth City Centre to the North. Unfortunately access to the various panels with the names on is very limited for wheelchair users and as many of the veterans are likely to be wheelchair bound (including myself) then this is unfortunate. Could Plymouth Council or the War Graves Commission rectify this then the answer would be yes, with couple of well placed wooden ramps and hand rails it could be made completely accessible.
  • Beautiful day so the area was a great place to visit. Lots of other visitors were there too
