Fodor's Expert Review Drake's Seat

West End Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Sir Francis Drake was supposed to have kept watch over his fleet, looking for enemy ships from this vantage point. The panorama is especially breathtaking (and romantic) at dusk, and if you arrive late in the day, you can miss the hordes of day-trippers on taxi tours who stop here to take pictures.
