Overview
More
A centrepiece on Plymouth's Hoe, Smeaton's Tower is one of the city's most recognisable and well-loved landmarks. The lighthouse was originally built out on the notorious Eddystone Reef in 1759. It was taken down in the early 1880s and approximately two thirds of its structure moved stone by stone to its current resting place. Now standing at 72 feet high, it offers brilliant views of Plymouth Sound and beyond. Visitors can climb to the top courtesy of a series of stairs and some of the original 18th century ladders.

I have been up Smeaton's tower before and it does have quite a few steps but certainly worth it for the view. Even if you don't go inside it still stands resplendent on Plymouth Hoe

Have been visiting this for many years. As a kid with all the excitement of the stairs until now with awe of how people lived in it when originally out on the eddistone rock. You get great views of Plymouth and the Sound.

This was originally a lighthouse part of the Eddystone group and originally lit by twenty four candles. Well worth a visit and to understand its history.

Great attraction - well worth the climb to see views from the top. Not for those with mobility challenges. Need to duck in places due to low head height & fairly narrow at times. Fabulous location.

Perched on the headland overlooking the channel, this tower has a great history. It's easy to reach, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The views from the top are superb, and make the effort of climbing to the top worth it.
