The seafront is one of the most fashionable places in Portsmouth, loved by people & locals alike. The beach goes along the whole southern end of Portsea Island from Old Portsmouth to Eastney. Next to the beach & seafront esplanade, Southsea Common is a huge open space that was bought from the War Department in 1922. It is perfect for kite flying, picnics & casual ball games. Southsea Common is also the location for Portsmouth & Southsea Show in August & many other things all through the year. There’s a bandstand where there’s always music on Sundays as well, all the entertainment is free. There’s also a few hotels & B&’s in Southsea.
Walk on the beach at Portsmouth with the sun shining down and the ferries coming and going in the harbour. You can look for shells or just relax in the sun.
