Family Days Out in Portsmouth and Southsea

 Southsea Beach

Southsea Seafront

Southsea is within a mile of Portsmouth's city centre.
Southsea beach is mostly flint gravel, but with sand exposed at low tide. A prominent sight out to sea is the four large forts created in the 1860s as part of an attempt to fortify the city against the threat of invasion. From the shore they look oval but are, actually round. There are two piers: South Parade Pier and Clarence Pier; both have amusement arcades. South Parade Pier also contains a ballroom and a bar area. Clarence Pier is next to a permanent funfair.
