Quieter than nearby Brighton, Southsea has many similar attractions to its neighbour but without the crowds. It also benefits from protection against bad weather from the nearby Isle of Wight, making Southsea one of the sunniest places in England!Fun and games in Southsea

Enjoy a walk along the beach under the sunshine, take a coffee break in one of the local independent cafes and then try your luck in the Golden Horseshoe or The Wheel of Fortune! Low cost fun for all the family! The games don’t stop as you head back into town. ‘Dice’ is a fabulously fun café on Albert Street which offers its visitors the use of its myriad different board games – a fun option for those rare cooler days!
