Visit Henry VIII's castle by the sea

Take in the splendour of Southsea Castle, the fortification situated right on the coast.

Henry VIII played a part in the design of the castle, with its curves and angles borrowing from emerging techniques for offering better protection and minimising blind spots.

Surely enough, the controversial king was within the castle walls during the Battle of the Solent, when he watched his beloved Mary Rose sink in battle with the French.

Today, Southsea Castle contains a museum, cafe, shop and microbrewery, as well as hosting all manner of events.
