Southsea Castle has also been known under the names of Chaderton Castle, South Castle and Portsea Castle is an artillery fort originally constructed by Henry VIII on Portsea Island in 1544.
The castle has displays in The Keep showing how the area would have looked at the time the Mary Rose sank including some artefacts recovered from the ship. The ramparts can be walked around and have great views over the Solent.
The castle is open from April until the end of October although the Courtyard Cafe is open all year round.
