We were looking for Langstone University grounds, and we found that the signange formt eh A27 wasn't the greatest.
We were led by our noses and our memory, as we had come here before.
There are also some funny signs around, this sign being one... although it's probably more due to our silly humour that we found it funny!
All minor injuries to go one way.. and obviously if you have a major injury, please go the other way... towards the cemetary ;)
It is not a huge area to navigate around, but it big enough to get hopelessly lost if the signage is all you go by.
Lugging bags around is a pain but so few rail stations have luggage lockers these days. If you need to drop your bags for the day in Portsmouth, go to the Victory news agent between The Hard Interchange and entrance to the Historic Dockyard. It costs 1.50GBP for each bag to be locked away next door.
NB: It may be worth checking with the local Tourist Info in advance to see if this offer is still available, there has been a crackdown on these arrangements all over Britain for 'security reasons'.
When in the general area, you...
When in the general area, you are really not too far away from BATH which is worth a whole day of visiting if time allows. Enjoy this 360 deg. panorama. Activate it with your mouse, zoom in or out.

The battleship HMS Warrior was launched in 1860. At that time, she was the mightiest, fastest, best-armored warship in the world. She had a main armament of 26 muzzle-loading 68 pounders, a crew of 705, and weight of 9,210 tons, Because the Royal Navy enjoyed unchallenged dominion of the seas, she never saw combat.
After only ten years of active service, the Warrior was relegated to the Reserve Fleet. She then spent many years as a hulk, just sitting around. She is the only survivor of all the battleships of that period. Anyone with an interest in maritime history should tour this historic ship.
