Next to the promenade and the beach is Southsea Gardens. Well kept and looked after and a joy to walk in and relax or eat your lunch. Good place to meet.

Lovely garden well set out. Little pathways winding through the garden roses are nearly finishing. Nice place to walk the dogs.

This place is just an oasis of beauty and tranquility and it’s completely free! Come when the roses are in full bloom and their perfume fills the air. Gorgeous!
