One of the many memorable locations close to our holiday lets Southsea is the South Parade Pier which is located close to our serviced apartments Portsmouth and is a lovely highlight on a sunny day. Alongside the more permanent attractions on South Parade Pier such as the Deep Blue for fish and chips and of course, the Amusement Arcades, the Kidz Island funfair on the pier is open all summer and is perfect for families to visit and have fun on the small array of attractions. Our family love the caterpillar rollercoaster and the pirate ship but younger children will like the mini quad bikes and ride-on carousel complete with fire engines and motorbikes.
