Never forget
Sep. 2020 • Solo
Located at the north-west corner of Guildhall Square before you reach Victoria Park this is an impressive memorial to those who gave their lives both military and civilian from Portsmouth and surrounding areas in defending our freedom. I confess that I have never really had a close up look before at the list of names so took some time today to look across all of the names. It’s a poignant reminder. Easy to get to and should be on your walking list as you tour this famous city that is very rich in history, more so than any other city on the south coast.

Concealed

Kinda difficult to run into it unless one is searching for it. Guess the designers wanted all to marvel at the big statue next to it - pictured - instead of fallen heroes remembered here.

Beautiful war memorial
Jan. 2019
This memorial has now been opened up so that more people can see it by the demolition of the drift bar. It is wonderful that it can now be seen by more people entering the city. In the summer it is a lovely sun trap and a great place to enjoy a quiet reflective lunch it is also the gateway to Victoria Park so perfect for a spot of quiet reflection.

Thought provoking
Jul. 2018
A very thought provoking place to visit and a good place to stop, reflect and consider those lost in battle. Very somber place but dignified and respectful.

A Thoughtful Place
Aug. 2017 • Friends
Tucked away in the corner of the Guildhall Square and partially hidden by some 70's architecture this cenotaph is nevertheless a peaceful place to reflect on past events. If you are here take time to go through the little gate into Victoria park just for a stroll, the park cafe and the birds.

To remember
May 2017 • Family
These kind of attractions are just to remember but therefore very important that they are there. This one is not situated in the most common place but still a visit worth.
