a stunning backdrop for any occasion

Southsea Seafront. Home to 8 miles of beach, stunning views & the iconic Southsea Castle & Lighthouse.

At the Southern end of Portsea Island lies Southsea, a seaside town steeped in history and with 8 miles of beautiful pebble beaches. The town takes it's name from Southsea Castle itself; a fort ordered by King Henry VIII in 1544 to help defend the Solent. The castle itself is a striking building complete with a lighthouse, open barracks allowing for breathtaking sea views and a quaint cobbled courtyard. Southsea Castle is not only a fantastic historical attraction but a wonderful location for any event.
