Southsea offers great museums, exciting places to visit, and is home to some of the south coast’s most historic sites. The shopping area provides a great mix of specialist, unique, and boutique-style shopping together with Debenhams and John Lewis department stores. When you add the beach and the great sea views to a great shopping experience you will certainly want to visit again and again!
Southsea provides two distinct shopping areas in close proximity to each other. The town centre shopping is located in and around the Palmerston Road pedestrian area. It's home to well-known brands and has lots of places to enjoy a meal or take a break for coffee and cake.
The area is well-served by public transport. Less than five minutes away from the Town Centre shops you'll find Albert Road, which is home to the King's Theatre. Albert Road provides for a different shopping offer. This area provides a wide and varied range of eateries and bars.
Between the sea and the shops you’ll find the great and green open space of Southsea Common. Many of the major events that take place in Portsmouth are based on and around the Common, and when it's not hosting an event, it’s a great place to stroll and take a break.
