When I visit Portsmouth, which is frequently as my aged mother and younger brother both live there, I try and fit in a run either around Farlington Marshes or along the top of Portsdown Hill.

I went up Portsdown Hill with some friends in late March 2015. We went at night and could see across the whole of Portsmouth as well as the nearest coastline of the Isle of Wight and Gosport.

It's a brilliant vantage point to look out over all of Portsmouth. Great for sunsets, thunderstorms, rainbows or just to get a breakfast bun at the burger van. The hill itself is brilliant for flying kites, orchid hunting and dog walking.

great views overlooking Portsmouth and wonderful spot to watch ships leaving and entering harbour. My wife used to sit up here watching me sail away and then returning when I was in the Royal Navy on aircraft carriers.

This is a fantastic place to look over the city of Portsmouth and appreciate the size and beauty of its magnificent natural harbour. The fish and chips are quite pricey but tasty.

I love the views from Portsdown Hill. And it's such a peaceful place to chill out and relax or to go for a walk. It's also a great spot to park up and watch the fireworks each year.
