Whilst the library looks nice and clean I did feel it was slightly more crowded and awkward with a pram to get round. Disappointed that I could not get the leaflets I wanted informing me of things going on around the area.

Only use this place to visit the cafe. They are lovely friendly staff, a variety of cakes and other snacks and small meals available. It's nice just to sit here with friends or just chill. After you've bought something of course.

Meet with friends & family a couple of times a week. The food is gòod, well prepared and reasonably priced, the scones are huge. Lovely staff always helpful.

I dont know why they insist on calling it the discovery centre, its a library ith a cafe. The title is misleading expecially for tourists to the area. We will be ignoring this place except to change library books, total waste of time for us.

The library rejoices in the name of Discovery Centre, but it's a library really. There is a good cafe and toilets, plenty of tables and chairs, free wifi (which is why I went there in the first place) and the staff are friendly and helpful....More

The Discovery Centre in Gosport is a joy to visit. I live in Fareham where the library is cold and soulless but functional - despite being done up recently. The Discovery Centre is welcoming, always full of people, has all sorts of displays and things...More
