Southsea is a popular resort with seafront gardens and a long beach, plus funfair rides at South Parade Pier, an aquarium, and a model village. Built by Henry VIII, moated Southsea Castle has cannons and views across the Solent. Edwardian landmarks include the Kings Theatre, a restored playhouse for mainstream shows and a slapstick Christmas pantomime. There are plenty of pubs, tea rooms, and curry houses inland. ― Google
