Southsea Guide

What is there to do in Southsea?

Southsea is the hidden gem on England’s south coast; many festivals don the resort each year, bringing a youthful energy that encapsulates the town. The shops and bars that frequent the small stretch along the beach are unique, independent outlets which you won’t find along the average high street, offering bespoke and authentic gifts and clothing. A whole day of shopping can work up an appetite, so it’s just as well Southsea has a number of restaurants offering cuisine from around the globe; you can savour the exotic herbs and spices at an Indian or taste some fresh pasta at the Italian joints. If going international isn’t your thing, a host of country pubs provide a quintessential pub dinner. Pubs and beaches are expected of a coastal town, but it’s the myriad of historical and cultural landmarks which elevate Southsea into higher regard. Southsea Castle is perhaps the highlight of the resort, showcasing the admirable architecture that adorns the south coast. After exploring the castle, gain an insight into the naval past belonging to the England’s shores by visiting the D-Day Museum, presenting fascinating artefacts throughout its history.
