“Nice but spoiled by burger and, bikers and chavs”
Review of Portsdown Hill

Portsdown Hill
Ranked #18 of 131 things to do in Portsmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 24, 2013

It is a nice place early in the morning to walk the dogs with great views. But it quickly is over-run by those seeking fatty burgers from the catering van that dominates the car park. Further west are other car parks but these have issues with space and are closer to the busy road

A wonderful vista carpark giving brilliant views over the Isle of Wight , Gosport and the far side of te Solent , on a clear day FAwley Power station and the edges of te New Forest , There is a permanent Burger van that has some huge burgers , some unmanageable sized ones too , Th e one we had was a little greasy , but better than I have had from many other rpadside vans . There was an ice cream van there too . The missing thing is toilets would be good , even if portaloo type , the car park was quite ful most ofthe time we were there .

Discovered this gem of a viewpoint a couple of weeks ago. Good car park fronted by an expanse of grass and woodland overlooking Portsmouth and the the Solent. Great views and good walks and looking at some of the bronzed bodies, good sunbathing spot!

Great views over the dockyard and beyond. I use my binoculars to see what ships are in and how many ships that are moth balled! Food also available Southwick end of Portsdown Hill.
