Southsea's seafront has plenty of space to play because the seafront is backed by lush green common land and gardens.  Why not bring a picnic and a kite or roller-blades?

Along the seafront, Blue Reef Aquarium takes you on an undersea safari and brings you face to face with sharks, rays and delightful otters in tropical waters.  The underwater tunnel is a fantastic experience, wander through while sharks and tropical fish swim above you.  Feeding demonstrations, talks and family activities regularly feature too.
