Why Move to Gosport?
Sitting on the south coast of the UK, Gosport is a Borough town which forms part of the county of Hampshire. There has been a settlement in the area since Anglo Saxon times.
Until relatively recently, Gosport was a major naval town associated with the defence and supply infrastructure of Her Majesty’s Naval Base (HMNB) Portsmouth.
The town is very proud of its naval roots and the navy still maintains its presence with HMS Sultan, a Naval Armament Supply Facility, as well as a Helicopter Repair base all of which are currently still operational in the town.
Not only does the area have access to acres of green space, as you would expect from a town situated on the coast, it also provides plenty of leisure activities connected to the sea.
Gosport boasts three marinas, which are home to hundreds of vessels from small rowing boats to luxurious mega yachts.
The Gosport peninsula has 17 miles of waterfront on Portsmouth Harbour and The Solent and is a maritime playground for all. Therefore, although an urban centre its residents can enjoy waterside, beach and countryside living, often literally on their doorstep.
According to Gosport City Council approximately 18,200 people commute out of Gosport for work to Fareham, Southampton, Portsmouth, and other large towns located nearby.
The main employers are the Office for National Statistics, Eaton Aerospace Limited and Gosport Council.
Gosport is easily to get to and from. The city of Portsmouth lies 12 miles away, but just a short 5-minute hop by ferry, whilst the large City of Southampton is 20 miles away.
The main M27 motorway offers routes along the coast east and west and London is under two hours by road. Ferries and catamarans run regularly to the Isle of Wight (20 minutes), France, Channel Islands and Bilbao.
The towns reputation was once that of a rather dowdy and run-down location, but Gosport has experienced many changes and in recent years has shaken off this negative view.
New residential developments have been constructed and improved facilities provided creating a great place to reside and work.
