See and Do

Gosport has a great range of attractions, activities, events and places to visit, perfect for one day or a longer trip to the South Coast. With its fantastic location, beautiful beaches and opportunities to stroll along the harbour front or meander through the Alver Valley and Wildgrounds, Gosport has much to offer a wide variety of visitors; although particularly suited to families, sailors and those with an interest in the nation’s great military history.

For families, there are beaches, parks, trails and interactive heritage attractions, as well as a host of indoor and outdoor leisure activities. From ice-cream and cafes to restaurants and takeaways, there are also plenty of opportunities to refuel, relax and make the most of the spectacular views – which Gosport offers in abundance.

If you love history, then you’ll love Gosport. From stunning architecture, to historic walks and award-winning museums, you will be amazed at just how much is packed into the Town and surrounding areas. The favourite stopping-off point for Queen Victoria on her way to Osborne House, Gosport still retains its appeal for today’s Royal family – from historic landmark sites, such as Royal Haslar, to their regular use of the great facilities and sailing opportunities available.

Gosport attracts sailors of all abilities and nationalities, with options to charter a boat, enjoy a rib ride or take part in a sailing challenge. The great southern coastline, clean and safe beaches are also a magnet for watersport enthusiasts and there is some great fishing to be had on and offshore.

On top of all this, there is a year-round programme of events – just check out our What’s On section to see what’s happening during your stay.
