Harbour Ramparts

The original town, which grew up around the Camber, was once entirely enclosed by ramparts; today only those on the harbour side are complete, forming a pleasant promenade with views of Gosport and Spithead. At the end of Broad Street, there is a fine panoramic view of the harbour traffic from the Point. Note two fine towers, modified on several occasions: the Round Tower, built on the orders of Henry V, and the Square Tower, dating from 1494.
