Overview...

Gosport is a town, district and borough situated on the south coast of England. It is part of the South Hampshire conurbation and lies on a peninsula on the western side of Portsmouth Harbour opposite the City of Portsmouth, to which it is linked by a pedestrian ferry. The Gosport peninsula has 17 miles (27 km) of waterfront on Portsmouth Harbour and The Solent and is a maritime playground for all. The pebble beach at Stokes Bay slopes steeply into the sea and offers fine views of the shipping going in and out of Portsmouth and Southampton and the many pleasure craft from the many marinas along The Solent and the Isle of Wight. There are acres of parkland and open spaces including 16 conservation areas.  Surrounded by the sea, watersports are inevitably a major attraction in Gosport.  There is also a high range of alternative outdoor provision, including two golf courses, thriving football, rugby and tennis clubs as well as indoor facilities including an ice-rink.
