Portchester Castle

Published on Wednesday 19th June 2024 by Griff Hosker

On our way back from Normandy we visited Portchester Castle. What a remarkable place. It has a Roman Fort as its base and its exterior walls are intact. That, alone would be worth a visit but it has a wonderful Norman Church and a 12th Century Castle with a huge donjon. As if that was not enough, Richard 2nd also built a palace there! A great castle with spectacular views of Portsmouth.
