I had the pleasure of taking my mum here just before she passed away, she loved her roses and garden and I have a lovely memory to hold of our visit.

This circular rose garden is so special and could be easily missed when visiting Portsmouth. Tucked behind Canoe Lake. A place to relax, meditate and contemplate.

Southsea Rose gardens are right on the sea front,and are traditonal sea front gardens,with a walled area. Many different types are grown. Summer activity really,but ok for a winter walk.
