Attractions near to Gosport
Spend the day in Portsmouth city centre and visit the Astonishing Emirates Spinnaker Tower, which opened in 2005 and is 170 metres high. It's one of the tallest structures in the country, and offers a fantastic panoramic view of the harbour from its observation deck. In fact, on a clear day with good visibility, you can clearly see the Isle of Wight, Southampton, the New Forest National Park, and across the South Downs National Park, making it one of the best vantage points in Hampshire!
If you are visiting Southampton, consider exploring Solent Sky, an aviation exhibition where you can learn about Hampshire's important role in the development of aircraft over the years. This venue houses many fascinating artefacts, from a Supermarine Spitfire aircraft to a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, and numerous other aircraft manufactured by more than two dozen companies.

Visit Nearby Southsea
Although technically part of Portsmouth, Southsea has the character of a separate town, developing as an independent resort in the Victorian period, long before it was absorbed into the city. While a classic fish and chips may be the order of the day for many visitors to the seaside, Southsea also has a thriving international restaurant scene representing everything from flavoursome Spanish fusion cuisine to exquisite British and French flare, or fiery Mexican or Thai dishes.
