“Soaring nearly 560 feet above the Solent, the Spinnaker Tower is a highlight of any visit to Portsmouth. Located on the waterfront at Gunwharf Quays, this tourist attraction offers wonderful panoramic views of the city and its spectacular harbor, as well as the south coast and the Isle of Wight.”

“Victoria Park is a public park located just to the north of Portsmouth Guildhall, adjacent to Portsmouth and Southsea railway station and close to the city centre in Portsmouth, Hampshire. It was officially opened on 25 May 1878 and was the first public park to be opened in Portsmouth. It was designed by Alexander McKenzie. It has a total area of around 15 acres (61,000 m2) and is planted with trees, shrubs and flowers. The centre of the park features an enclosed area which inhabits animals such as birds, rabbits and guinea pigs.”

“Outdoor park with concrete rinks, ramps & rails, for skateboards, BMXs, scooters and roller blades. Mini-wheeler sessions. Roller Disco summer sessions with the best DJs and live music. There are helmets, skates, skateboards and a limited number of scooters available to hire at reasonable rates. Please note that they recommend all users to wear helmets and all under 16s must do so. The iconic image of the skatepark is the bandstand, situated in the centre of the skatepark and built in 1928 as a traditional bandstand, surrounded by grass. In the 1930s a paved area was laid around the bandstand for dancing and for roller skating, surrounded by a low fence. Southsea Skatepark is arguably the oldest skatepark in the World, with the current ‘rink’ area dating back to a roller rink that was first built back in the 1950s. Back in the 70s and 80s the rink was only used for roller hockey. The skatepark was remodelled in the 1970s with concrete (bowls, snakerun, etc) and then modified again in 1990 with a new bowl replacing the old reservoir. In the mid to late 90s the rink area was built on with new ledges, banks, rails and ramps and in the last ten years two new mini ramps and a replacement vert ramp have been built. "We’re possibly the oldest and most iconic Skatepark in the UK – and celebrated our 40th birthday last year! We open all year round and welcome everyone from beginners to pros. Since 2011, Southsea Skatepark has been run as a charity. Every penny we raise goes towards improving the park and it’s facilities." The skatepark periodically holds contests catering for BMX, inline, scooters and skateboarding. BMX shop on site. Southsea Skatepark reflects it’s age, mixing the legendary concrete from the 70s as one of the first skateparks in the UK , with the contemporary street/park section, which includes a state of the art vert ramp, spine mini, and a 4ft metal mini around by the cafe. Southsea Skatepark covers a range of styles, from the snake run bowl that encourages carving and creative lines to the pool slalom run bowl that has just had a small box jump added to the top of the run. Next there's the mogul and keyhole bowl that link together and have brought so much history to the park, it’s fair to say visitors come and go and respect anything done in the keyhole bowl which is approx 16ft deep. It definitely adds that legit tag to anything you can do in it. What was originally the banked freestyle kick turn area, has now had a state of the art 14ft high / 40ft wide vert ramp with skate lite surface added. Next to the vert (surrounding the iconic bandstand) there's a flat bank hip and pyramid grind rail that flows into a 4ft hip into the skate rink.”

“The historic Hilsea Lido dates back to 1932, and has been enjoyed by generations ever since. Today, Hilsea Lido is a 67m long unheated pool, 1m deep at the shallow ends, and with a 4.5m deep diving pit. There's also a 2m diving platform in the middle. The Ladies and Gents facilities have individual changing and shower cubicles. Wetsuits are permitted. Beach shoes rather than bare feet are recommended for walking around the site. There are also wide doors and ramps to ensure everyone is able to enjoy the water. A small number of swim aids and water games are available, though swimmers are welcome to bring their own. During fun sessions the pool is divided to ensure safe management of the diving platform, which is open if sufficient lifeguards are available. 'Just Swim' sessions are for adults only, the whole length of the pool is available but the diving platform is not. Outside of the pool, there are picnic tables and plenty of space for sunbathing. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own seating and picnic supplies. Alternatively, why not head over to the Blue Lagoon to sample the homemade cakes, tea, coffee and various hot and cold lunches! You'll also find ice creams and ice cold drinks. For the more adventurous there is a long lake where you can hang onto a zip wire and surf!”

“The Cenotaph in the Guildhall Square comprises of two memorials - one to the dead of World War I and one to the dead of World War II. It is accessible at all times. The World War I Memorial includes two sculptures of machine gunners by Charles Sargeant Jagger (1885-1934), an artist who was a veteran of WW1 and a recipient of the Military Cross. He was wounded at Gallipoli, and again, near-fatally during the Western Front campaign of 1918. PEACE OR CONFLICT MEMORIAL. This white stone plaque on the pedestal to the North Gunner was paid for by Portsmouth City Council and unveiled on 6 November 2003 by Mrs Madeleine Dunn who heads the Portsmouth War Widows. THE WORLD WAR I MEMORIAL Preparations for the construction of the Cenotaph began almost as soon as the Great War ended, but it was not until 1920 that invitations to subscribe to the cost were made. A list of all who donated money and the amounts they gave is held at the Central Library in Guildhall Square. At the same time, local people were asked to nominate the service persons whose names should appear on the memorial, the criteria being 'That the man was born in Portsmouth, (or) that he resided in Portsmouth when the war began, (or) that his home was in Portsmouth when the war began'. Great stress was laid on the concept that 'Not a single name should be omitted', however a perusal of the local parishioners memorials shows a considerable discrepancy on this matter. THE WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL For 60 years following the end of World War II the only memorial to the men and women who lost their lives was a low stone wall at the rear of the Cenotaph with the words 'IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES IN WORLD WAR II 1939 - 1945' inscribed upon it. On 8th November 2005 a new WWII memorial was unveiled by Princess Alexandra. That this memorial should exist at all is almost wholly down to the dogged determination of Jean Louth whose father Harry Short had died on the beaches of Dunkirk. It was Jean Louth with the help of organisations such as the Normandy Veterans Association and the Portsmouth South Branch of the Royal British Legion who lobbied for funds to raise this memorial. This though was only the first phase as Jean was determined that the names of those who died should be included on the memorial and it took a further eight years to raise the funds necessary to inscribe and raise the twelve panels of names.”
