Not such a regular visitor to Portsmouth now, but whenever I can, I stop at the top of the hill, to stretch my legs as it's a great place to stroll for a while. Fantastic views across the Solent & City. Brings back good memories. Just love it when it's windy!

A bit of a trek from the Southsea area, but a wonderful place all the same to get great views of the city by day and night. Worth a visit. (Also, riding down the hill on a bike is great fun).

We walked along the hill and the view of Portsmouth is outstanding. It was a good day and we could see as far as the Isle of Wight and pick out destinations there. We like the forts and will see them another day.
