Portsdown Hill

It's a pretty big hill, right?

I don't see us having time to get there on the day we visit the dockyards and Spinnaker Tower but perhaps we could swing by as we drive from Brighton to Lulworth Cove.

If we don't have alot of time, from which parking areas or paths would we be able to get the best views?

Park at Fort Nelson. The directions are on this link...


...and if you've got an hour [preferably longer] to spare then a wander around the Fort will make you wish you had longer time to spend there!

I hope the weather is in you favour for the views.

quite a few free car parks and laybys to enjoy the views.

If you are coming from Brighton, exit the A27... sign posts will say "A3 M"

put in "portsdown hill road" into your sat nav and that will take you from the start of the hill.
