Whether it's a day trip, short break or week-end stopover, there's so much to enjoy and keep you busy in Gosport. Explore the fascinating history and heritage of our museums or our extensive Waterfront. A wonderful location is one of Gosport's main strengths. Its beautiful south facing beaches look out towards the Isle of Wight and the Solent.
 

Gosport's Naval History

Explosion! The Museum of Naval Firepower is a hands on, interactive museum set in Gosport's former gunpowder and munitions depot. Open at weekends 10am-4pm, it tells the story of naval warfare from the days of gunpowder to modern missiles.

Dive into the past and the future at The Royal Navy Submarine Museum, where you can take a guided tour of World War II submarine HMS Alliance, led by a submariner, or climb on board Holland I - the Navy's first submarine from 1901.
 

Things to do in Gosport

The Museum of Diving was voted one of the top six family-friendly museums in the UK. Its fascinating exhibits cover all aspects of diving, from the world’s first diving helmet to modern military, commercial and scientific diving equipment, it even includes equipment used by James Bond!

You can find more James Bond equipment at the Hovercraft Museum. The Museum has the hovercraft that featured in the opening chase sequence from ‘Die Another Day’ starring Pierce Brosnan. The Museum houses a large range of hovercraft - military ones, sports ones and a huge cross channel one, plus ones that have featured in the Top Gear, Scrapheap Challenge and Salvage Squad TV programmes.
 
Moving away from the maritime theme, step back in time with a wander through the 1642 Living History Village. Meet and talk with the ‘villagers’ dressed in period costumes as they demonstrate the historic skills of the blacksmith, potter, lace-makers and weavers.

Or take a leisurely sight-seeing cruise with the Gosport Ferry. Operating a range of cruises, May to September, taking in such scenic and beautiful locations as the Hamble, Beaulieu Rivers or Portsmouth Harbour, with superb views of the ships in dock and a stunning view of the Spinnaker Tower, it's the perfect way to spend the day.

During the summer months (April - October) you can take advantage of the Portsmouth Harbour Waterbus and enjoy both Portsmouth and Gosport's attractions. Why not take a tour of the harbour and stop off at four of the Harbour's top attractions including the Historic Dockyard and Explosion! Museum of Naval Power?
