Southsea is a delightful and mature seaside resort, located to the south of Portsmouth city centre and to the east of Old Portsmouth. It developed as a fashionable Victorian seaside resort in the 19th century subsequently growing into a residential suburb and large, distinct commercial and entertainment area, separate from the centre of Portsmouth.
The areas surrounding Albert Road, Palmerston Road, and Osborne Road contain several bars, restaurants and independent shops. Palmerston Road is the main High Street of Southsea and contains a national department store, as well as the local library. Albert Road is a distinct street containing shopping and cultural venues, which includes the Kings Theatre, a regional theatre built in 1907.
Southsea beach is mostly shingle, but with sand exposed at low tide. There are two piers, South Parade Pier and Clarence Pier.
Millennium Promenade was created extending to Gunwharf Quays from Southsea seafront. The walkway is marked on the pavement and is lined by distinctive blue street lanterns.
English Heritage blue plaques commemorate notable figures in Southsea including Rudyard Kipling, Thomas Ellis Owen, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Arthur Conan-Doyle and Peter Sellers.
