Plymouth Hoe Waterfront is volunteer run online community network powered by Eddystone Media.
It first started on 22nd February 2012 with an aim to help promote this beautiful area of Plymouth and the huge variety of events on offer to visitors and locals. Ever since then, it grew in follower numbers year on year by promoting positive news and being proud of our city’s heritage, achievements and outstanding natural beauty.
We run a very vibrant social media community both on Facebook and Twitter, where we frequently post and share quality photography, videos and news articles about Plymouth Hoe. These independent, fan-accounts operate thanks to the people who kindly donate their time and skills to help Plymouth Hoe Waterfront network grow.
Here’s to many more years of shouting out about Plymouth Hoe!
The official Plymouth Visitor Guide 2018 is now out in digital format & print copies will be available from early March.
There are some excellent suggestions of places to visit when in the area, news on events and interesting facts about Plymouth. Well worth having a little browse, whether you are a visitor or live locally.

Happy Birthday to us!!
The Plymouth Hoe Waterfront network is 5 years old! Today marks 5 years of our work with the local Plymouth Hoe community both online and on the ground.
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it helping to highlight what is going on around the area. We would like to thank everyone who volunteer their time and skills to support local businesses and help to promote this beautiful area to both visitors and locals.
