    Southsea Castle was built in 1544 to protect the solent and portsmouth harbour from the french
    it was a live military site until the 1960's and is now open to the public free of charge
    it has probably 30 or 40 different guns from different time periods outside and atop the castle walls.

    you can enter the tunnels that go round both the inside and outside of the dry moat

    but do watch out as they are damp with headroom going to around 5 feet in places with no warning
