Portsmouth, Hampshire, England
Bright, spacious and spotlessly clean top floor apartment with sea views and stunning sunsets in a characterful Victorian building. Originally a townhouse, converted into five split level flats circa 1979.

The apartment is located in central Southsea on the seafront in a conservation area. It has views out to Southsea Common, the Solent, Isle of Wight and Spinnaker Tower. The accommodation is ideal for small families, couples, solo and business travellers.

The apartment is excellently located. It is minutes from Palmerston Road with its many eating places and shopping precinct (including a Waitrose supermarket) and a short walk from Old Portsmouth (15 minutes). Only slightly further away is Gunwharf Quays and the Spinnaker Tower, the Historic Dockyard and Central Portsmouth (20-25 minutes). We’re also minutes from the Isle of Wight Hov...

Outstanding location, outstanding apartment, outstanding hosts. We booked this apartment last minute and boy did we get lucky. Yes, it is a lot of stairs to the top, but the view is worth it alone. Mr and Mrs Crick could not have been more helpful,...More

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is located within a special, typically Victoria building, one of the few left in Southsea with many of its original features. It forms part of the Seafront Conservation Area. It is a residential building with only four other apartments. We're located in the most perfect spot to explore the whole of the city. We're on the doorstep of Southsea Common, minutes away from shops, restaurants, beach walks, Clarence Pier & Funfair and children's playground; and no more than half an hour walk to all of Portsmouth's attractions.
Getting around
Local parking - parking in the area is 'pay and display' as well as residents parking. We can arrange a Visitors Parking Permit for the duration of your stay if needed. Visitor Parking Permits cost: £2 for 24 hours.

Travelling By Train - the closest train station to the apartment is about 20 minutes walk and is ‘Portsmouth Harbour’ station.

Travelling By Bus - there are several bus stops within a few minutes walk of Western Parade.

Taxi use in Southsea / Portsmouth is popular and fairly economical. Ask us for local taxi company details if you need them.
