Clarence pier was once a major stopping point for old steamers and boats. Great location close to the entrance of Portsmouth Harbour,with a tradional fair including the wild mouse,bumper cars and Waltzers for traditional fair goers! Restaurants/bars/amusements/crazy golf all on the pier.

Amazing views, and the restaurant is good. The carousel this summer was delightful. Shame about the tarmac, but still a lovely walk. I wander up there most days. Good to see it being used by locals fishing

Not been here for about 17 years. Just doesn't have the same feel that it had. Nothing new, only one of the shops was open, rest were shuttered up.
