Strong Island Photography Walkshop - Portchester Castle

Portchester Castle

We’ll be starting off in the castle carpark and walking down to the main gate and then around the exterior of the castle wall perimeter. We’ll look at ways of capturing the different areas of the castle, the textures and the historical elements on the walls, etc. We’ll go down to the harbour-side gate and take photos using the old spiral staircase before going out to the harbour edge. From here we’ll be walking around the outer walls with stunning views out over Portsmouth Harbour. We’ll finish off exploring the woodland to the south of the castle (if there is time).

Expect to see loads of fantastic historical elements from towers to stairs to walls & gates and also views south over Portsmouth Harbour, yachts travelling to & from Port Solent and the green woodland between the shoreline and castle grounds.

Meet at:

At castle carpark in Waterside Lane (pay & display). There is a bus stop 10 minutes away on Castle Street. Portchester train station is about 30 minutes walk away.


This walk is about 90% wheelchair accessible, with good paths around the castle and Portsmouth Harbour shoreline. We will be going off of the paths on to grass within the castle but for the time of year it is likely to be firm and dry.
