Overlooking the Solent, Portsmouth's Blue Reef Aquarium takes visitors on an undersea safari. From the rich variety of British waters to the beauty of a tropical coral reef and more than 40 other displays - including a fantastic otter holt - the aquarium offers a fascinating window into the hidden world beneath the waves. At the aquarium's heart is a giant tropical reef tank that is home to a variety of tropical sharks and stingrays, as well as hundreds of brightly-coloured reef fish. Visitors are able to get up close to these creatures and see life from the sea bed, thanks to the underwater, walk-through tunnel. During the summer, families can take a break in the outside play area and splash pool. There are also a number of events running throughout the year, including animal feeding and educational talks. A full list of events and feeding times can be found on the website.

The Common owes its existence to the strains of the military in the early nineteenth century for a clear range of fire from the harbour defences at any enemy ships which dared to approach Portsmouth and its dockyard. Southsea Common is a vast open space that was purchased from the War Department in 1922. The area is adjacent to the popular seafront promenade and beach, which is ideal for kite flying, picnics and informal ball games. Southsea Common is a great place to hang out with friends or family. You're able to enjoy the view of the beach, but sit on the comfort of a bench or the grass. It's a large open space allowing there to be room for many different activities. Southsea Common is a fantastic place to bring the kids to play at over summer, or have a picnic with a couple friends. Facilities also include a children's play area, beach volleyball courts, tennis, pitch and putt and a skate park. There are many paths across the Common, including the Ladies Mile, which are flanked by attractive spring bulbs. Some of the mature trees date from 1910.
