Not the most picturesque of marinas.However it still is somewhere to walk and enjoy one of the bars and restaurants in the vicinity. Quite a few boats to see , no swimming allowed though..

This is a great area to walk around, lots to see and beautiful views. You can get a good view of the Severn Bridge and look across to Wales. Plenty of shops nearby also.

Stopped off for a quick visit to the marina and to see Full Fathom Five. There are plenty of flats overlooking the marina and the marina itself is lovely, you have to take a walk around it.

You have to walk around the Marina if you come to Portishead. The flats that adorn marina must look picturesque in the summer. The area is lively without being rowdy. A very beautiful friendly part of Bristol

Nice place to go for a gentle stroll as long as the weather is fine, suspect it could be rather wet and windy otherwise. Good views over the severn estuary and Royal Portbury Docks

Not at all what we were expecting, a beautiful, bright modern area, lovely for a walk on a sunny day. Surprisingly easy and free parking in the streets nearby. The nearby town is unremarkable, but has a nice cafe (Shanicatti Shakes).

Portishead Marina is a surprise area and well worth a visit. Had a very pleasnt stroll around the marina after a very satisfying meal at the nearby Premier Inn. It's very trendy and not at all like a British destination. I'd definately reccommend visit.

Hi There yes the centre of Portishead and the Marina are all on the level and there are many opportunities to park and Lidles is probably towards the centre of all these facilities. Enjoy your visit
