“Excellent rose garden”

Southsea Rose Garden
Ranked #21 of 128 things to do in Portsmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Visited in June, which of course is the height of rose blooms.
Most are low down - 1 foot high - with a pergola of climbing roses around the perimeter.
Lovely colour and scent.
FOC to enter.
The Japaese garden was more plain.

Thank Tedfordian

peace
a rare commodity
here u will find it
it is amazingly quiet and away from the maddening crowd
to walk round
or
sit and ponder
it promotes it's own feeling of tranquillity

take time out
and
experience it

It was a glorious day when we visited, roses in full bloom. The different colours all compliment each other. The little Japanese garden was a bit overgrown.

Hard to believe a 19th century fort called '"Lumps Fort" could be so beautiful . The majority of the fort succumbed to weather but a portion was converted and is a peaceful beautiful place to sit and have a tea. My Dad who is 83 say it has been there as long as can remember, but I cannot seem to find when it was actually started .Everyday I am in South-sea I visit the garden although it is at its is moist beautiful in May and June. Although marked it does seem to be a bit hidden but you will find it just past canoe Lake.

This garden is so peaceful, with a beautiful layout of roses. There are seats all around the garden which people tend to put if a loved one enjoyed there time in these gardens.
