Southsea Common

Kite-flying, picnics, ball games, and relaxing walks along the tree-lined paths are just some of the fun things anyone can do on Southsea Common. There’s also a children’s play area, tennis facilities, and Southsea Skatepark. It’s right by the beach, too, and just minutes away from the Palmerston Road shopping high street.

Due to it's large open expanse, many Portsmouth events take place on the Common throughout the year including Victorious Festival, the Portsmouth Kite Festival, Beach Buggin' car show, Race for Life, the Great South Run, Portsmouth Festivities events, The Moscow State Circus, and regular car boot sales.
