Great site to visit for all ages. The views are amazing and lots of space for children to run around and enjoy some fresh air. Also great to just view from your car, enjoy an ice cream or cuppa from the vans. Will visit again...More

We park here regularly just for the views across Portsmouth and Hayling Island to The Solent and Isle of Wight. Burgher and Ice cream vans offer a good choice of food.
