Gosport is a peninsular separating Southampton and Portsmouth which is easily reached by Gosport ferry. Portsmouth offers great retail therapy either in the high street or Gunwharf quays, which also boasts a multi screen cinema, bowling, excellent restaurants, clubs and the famous Spinnaker tower. Or if you want a little culture, why not visit Portsmouth's historic dockyard, where you can visit King Henry VIII ship, the Mary Rose, or walk in the steps of Admiral Lord Nelson, on board the H.M.S Victory, or explore the British navy's first iron steamship, H.M.S Warrior, which you can see in all her glory, moored close to the ferry terminal! There is also Portsmouth City Museum and Art Gallery.
Gosport is also an historic town, with strong links to the military, both navy and army, this is reflected in the remaining naval bases, H.M.S. Sultan and Centurion, where three of Gosports forts are located. They were built in the mid 1800's and are known as Palmerston's Follies. The two remaining are Fort Brockhurst which is open to the public depending on season, and Fort Kilkicker, which can be seen if you visit our lovely Stokes Bay beach. Along with beautiful views of the Solent and impressive Isle of Wight, you might wish to wander through Stanley park.
Gosport is also home to the submarine museum, where you can find the navy's first manned submarine, Holland I. And from the museum, you can see the impressive architecture of the famous naval hospital Haslar. Walking back from here to the town centre, you will cross Haslar bridge and enjoy the views of Haslar Marina, where you will see Fort Monkton, previously H.M.S Dolphin, and the water tower where naval recruits were taught to escape submerged vessels!
