Our Guide to Gosport

Gosport Marina

The medium sized marina of Gosport is home to 500 water berths with inclusive water and power for each. The pontoons are wheel-chair accessible and there is a 14 ton crane available alongside two well stocked chandleries nearby. Outboard repairs and GRP repair services are also available. The marina remains at a good price.


Up until the last quarter of the 20th century, Gosport was a major military town. As a result of a decline in these activities, many of its fortifications and installations, such as Fort Brockhurst, have been opened to the public as tourism and heritage sites, with extensive redevelopment of the harbour area as a marina.

Royal Naval Hospital Haslar, formally the last military hospital of the U.K. was closed as a military site in March 2007. It was opened in 1753, serving military personnel and their families. It remains a clear period of history for most of the town’s population.

Things to see and do

The Royal Navy Submarine museum lies in the town of Gosport and is a brilliant and interesting full day out for any family or enthusiast. It has recently finished all of it’s exhibits and as such the full museum is open to the public.

Apart from the museum, Gosport is also home to the Little Woodham living history village, which is a 17th century historic village based in the heart of Gosport. A great day out for anyone interested in how life was around the 17th century.
