Mulberry Harbours in Hampshire.

Mulberry Harbour

10-min drive from Lakeside and walking distance from Sinah Warren
A piece of WWII history that can be seen from the Sinah shoreline, Mulberry Harbours were developed by the United Kingdom to land troops and supplies en masse without the need for a port. In Langstone Harbour are the remains of a Phoenix Caisson (type C).

Chichester in Hampshire.


27-min drive from Lakeside and 29-min drive from Sinah Warren, PO19 1HS
The cathedral city of Chichester dates back to Roman times and boasts nearby beaches, shopping, and historic tours. We recommend West Dean Gardens, a restored garden with working Victorian glasshouses, a 300 foot pergola, spring garden and occasional fibreglass ‘surreal’ trees.

Emsworth on Hayling Island.


18-min drive from Lakeside and 22-min drive from Sinah Warren, PO10 8BP
The coastal village of Emsworth features narrow streets lined with Georgian houses, walled gardens, a mill pond, and spectacular views across the water of Chichester Harbour. The antique dealers and independent food shops give it a delightful old world charm.

Millennium Promenade Portsmouth in Hampshire.

Millennium Promenade Portsmouth

26-min drive from Lakeside and 28-min drive from Sinah Warren, PO5 3AA
A celebration of Portsmouth’s rich history, three kilometres of promenade link all the points of interest on the waterfront. Built at the turn of the millennium, the route is indicated by a chain motif set into the surface to symbolise the historic chain that was tightened across the harbour entrance.

Southsea Front in Hampshire.

Less than a mile from Portsmouth city centre, this mainly shingle beach is home to Southsea Pier, winner of ‘Pier of the Year’ 2018. Restored to its former glory, this iconic structure has been featured in an eclectic mix of media, from The Who’s ‘Tommy’ to Mr. Bean.
