Other Activities Around Fort Purbrook

Apart from taking the chance to look around Fort Purbrook itself, the Royal Armories at Fort Nelson is well worth a visit. Also in the Portchester area is the Ancient Roman Portchester Castle looking into Portsmouth Harbour. To the east, why not try the quaint river village of Bosham - don’t leave your car in the car park when the tide is on the turn! Wander around the village and visit Bosham Quay and the local Arts and Craft Centre.

Accommodation In The Portsmouth Area

The most conveniently located hotel for the Fort Purbrook Boat jumble is probably the Premier Inn located at Junction 5 of the A3(M) - the hotel is a 5-minute drive away. Also, the Oak Tree House B&B in Waterlooville is less than 15 minutes away. On the doorstep camping around Fort Purbrook is a little limited, so if you are thinking of caravanning or camping, be prepared to be situated a little further away. That said, there are many great sites dotted around, especially towards Chichester or north into the South Downs National Park.
