Fort Nelson is a free Museum with lots of artifacts from the War. Is very well laid out and access for the disabled. Lots of green space for kids to run around. Nice cafe serving food, cakes and drinks.

Excellent place to visit to view Portsmouth and the immediate coastline. Very nostalgic for anyone who knew this area as a child. Very good local food bar with good value for money fast food. Pity the authority do not consider providing toilet facilities.

From the top of this hill there are fantastic views across the Solent. There is a whole series of forts along the hillside, some of which are open to the public. In addition, there is a large, 120feet high, monument to Admiral Lord Nelson
