Southsea is an attractive resort overlooking the Solent with splendid gardens, piers and shopping facilities. Adjacent is the maritime city of Portsmouth where the Historic Dockyard houses Nelson’s Flag Ship HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the new Mary Rose Museum which opened in 2016. Gunwharf Quays, a superb development at Portsmouth Harbour, offers designer outlet shopping, wining and dining and the Spinnaker Tower provides magnificent views for miles around both day and night.
Alternatively visit Spice Island for a taste of old Portsmouth with its narrow alleyways, squares and city walls.
Period elegance is combined with modern comfort in the Best Western Royal Beach Hotel which is situated opposite the pier and beach in Southsea, close to the attractions of Old Portsmouth. All bedrooms are served by a lift and are en-suite with TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has a small number of rooms with walk in showers which can be requested but not guaranteed.
