  • A great tourist attraction, visit an historic lighthouse. Amazing panoramic views from the top, lots of history on the way up. It is narrow in parts and its a fair climb to the top but totally worth it. This historic monument was 14miles out to see at Wolf Rock, you can just about see its modern day replacement on the horizon.
  • Lovely views all round. Only ten minutes walk from the town centre. The lighthouse provides a nice focal point on the Hoe. Very popular barbecue spot during the summer. Would recommend a visit if you have some time to kill and just want to unwind :)
  • Whether you're a uni student or a visitor this is a must do tourist attraction. For not even £4 each you can go up to the top and get some amazing views of both the sea and the city. It is truly an iconic symbol for Plymouth!
  • Moved from the Eddystone Rock due to subsidence, Smeaton's Tower offers a fascinating look back at the life of a Victorian lighthouse keeper.
  • A guy telling the stoey behind the lighthouse, 83 steps, great view!
