Portchester is a suburb 6 km (4 miles) north-west of Portsmouth on the eastern boundary of Fareham in Hampshire.

Once a small village, Portchester is now a busy part of the expanding population between Portsmouth and Southampton on the A27 main thoroughfare. Although houses now rise up the lower slopes of Portsdown Hill, the top of the hill is still open and there are excellent views across the town, of Portsmouth Harbour and across fields and woodlands of rural Hampshire.

From the centre of Portchester, Castle Street leads to the highly impressive Portchester Castle. Along the way, there are many 18th century houses with small cottage gardens resembling an old country village.

In 1294 Porchester had a market and a famous medieval fayre. The local market is still held on Wednesdays between 8.30am and 4.30pm in Portchester's West Street where our shop is situated and is a feature of the town.

Our Porchester shop sells a varied selection of goods including bric-a-brac, clothing, accessories and other items. Our team are happy to help you browse and there are many bargains and interesting finds to be found in store.
