Along Southsea seafront

View out to sea from Southsea Seafront

The three-mile walk along Southsea Seafront is a perennial favourite - with no visit to the coast ever complete without seeing the sea!

This itinerary takes you along the length of the promenade from west to east, starting at the Round Tower. It takes in guided walkways, historic buildings, fascinating museums, family-friendly attractions and not one but two piers!

Of course, in addition to all the below places to visit you also have the stunning view out across the Solent and to the Isle of Wight. There are views out to the horizon, and across the ever-changing seascape - with ferries, catamaran, hovercraft and plenty more besides.
