ViewRanger GPS - Fort Brockhurst to Royal Clarence Marina and back

What is ViewRanger?

ViewRanger is the mobile app that will turn your smartphone into a powerful Outdoors GPS navigator, at a fraction of the cost of buying a dedicated GPS device. Plan, Plot, Navigate, Track, Locate, Record, be Guided, Analyse & Share your outdoor adventures using ViewRanger.

Here is one of the routes that I've created and published on My.viewranger.com:

The walk starts in the free car park adjacent Fort Brockhurst. The route goes around the fort's moat and then leads on to Monks Walk by the sea. From there it's a short walk to Priddys Hard, where you follow the sea front promenade to the Explosion Museum Of Naval Firepower (cafe stop). Walking through the museum grounds leads you to the Millennium Bridge and great views of Portsmouth Harbour (Warships). Over the bridge and you are into the historic and beautifully restored Royal Clarence Marina where you can find the odd wine bar e.t.c. The route back is slightly different, but no less enjoyable.
