Local Attractions in and around our Southsea Accommodation
HMS WARRIOR 1860
As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away.
Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.
Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself.
Open daily from 10.00am

Southsea Castle - Hampshire - 0.68 miles
Southsea Castle was built by Henry VIII between 1544 and 1545 to protect Portsmouth against possible French invasion. Its revolutionary design provided for the most efficient use of guns in attack or defence now that artillery dominated warfare. In the early 19th century, the castle was substantially altered to accommodate extra guns and a larger garrison of 200 men. The most significant addition of this period was an underground tunnel around the moat, which you can still enter. The castle was only withdrawn from active service in 1960. In our amazing Time Tunnel the Ghost of the Castle's first master gunner guides you through the most dramatic scenes from the castle's eventful history.
Portsmouth Football Club - 1.04 miles
Premiership side Portsmouth were founded in 1898 by a collection of businessmen, amongst them the first chairman of the club, John Brickwood, and the man who would become known as the 'father of the club', George Oliver. Pompey tasted their first success in the FA Cup in 1939 under legendary manager Jack Tinn, who had lead the side to two previous final defeats. It is Tinn who is credited with laying the platform for the consecutive championship winning sides of the late 1940's. Fast Fact: Peter Harris is Pompey's most successful marksman scoring 208 goals in 516 games in all competitions. Fast Fact: Serbia and Montenegro international Dejan Stefanovic is Pompey's record signing at 1.85million pounds.
