We live fairly near to Portchester castle, I have been there many times as a child but my partner has never been and Valentines Day seem a good day to go visit a castle 🙂
We loved looking round the castle unfortunately a section of it is under repair/ maintenance, the view at the top is wonderful and rather chilly! Then loved walking all the way back down the spiral staircase. Would definetly recommend listening to the audio tour too.
We then headed over to the church to have a look inside and there’s a lovely te room so warmed up a bit with a cup of coffee and hot chocolate.
We then walked along the edge of the water, played in the desolate children’s play park and then headed into Portchester highstreet. Went in all the charity shops and brought 2 lovely new jumpers, a new cooking bowl, 2 cd’s a pair of shoes and a groovy wall fixture then hopped on the bus to the Seagull pub for lunch before heading on into Fareham. Contacted my big bro and saw Shaun the Sheep at Reel! Then as my brother had a while till the next train back to Pompey we went to spoons for a couple of drinks and then ended up having a pub dinner as well as a lunch! before heading back home on the bus.
