Places to visit, things to do
Port Solent Marina is a stunning modern marina offering a lively and vibrant waterside experience. On The Boardwalk, you'll find a variety of restaurants and pubs to tempt you from around the world – from English fare to Italian comfort food, hot and spicy Mexican to the mouth-watering tastes of the orient. For more casual dining, there’s a 1950s style American diner to enjoy alongside a Pizza Express and several cafés. For details and reservations numbers visit portsolent.com
If you like to shop, you’ll love the eclectic mix of shops on The Boardwalk. Here, you will find jewellery and contemporary art, ski and outdoor clothing, fashion footwear, books and the UK’s biggest chandlery. Shopping aside, there’s a multiplex cinema to enjoy, a David Lloyd Health and Fitness Club and seasonal markets.
If you prefer the outdoor life, there are also walks on the open land to the south of the marina or, just a short distance away at Portchester, you'll find Portchester Castle, a medieval castle built within the walls of a 3rd century Roman fort.
Further afield, Portsmouth ‘The great waterfront city’ is just 18 minutes away by train from the local Portchester station, and here you will find a wealth of attractions. Experience 800 years of naval history, take a trip to the top of the Spinnaker Tower, find out more about the historic landings at the D-Day Museum or go on an under the sea safari at the Blue Reef Aquarium.
