Location Overview:

Southsea is a seaside resort and a geographic area of Portsmouth, Portsea Island in England. Southsea is located 1.8 miles (2.8 km) to the south of Portsmouth's inner city centre. Southsea began as a fashionable 19th-century Victorian seaside resort named Croxton Town, after a Mr Croxton who owned the land. As the resort grew, it adopted the name of nearby Southsea Castle, a seafront fort constructed in 1544 to help defend the Solent and approach to Portsmouth Harbour.

Steeped in history, there is always something to see and do in Southsea. The pier is a popular location for a spot of fishing or entertainment for children with its various gaming arcades. Clarence Pier has a seasonal fairground and a lovely seafront walk along the seawall towards historic Old Portsmouth, Spice Island, Gunwharf Quays, and the always fascinating naval dockyards where you’ll be able to learn about Portsmouth Naval past and visit the Mary Rose museum. Southsea Common is home to the multi-award-winning Victorious Festival, an annual music festival attracting top-name music artists and comedy stars. Fancy a spot of shopping? Albert Road and Palmerston Road boast a selection of independent retail shops and lively social scene restaurants to suit everyone's taste.
