Southsea: Ideal family life in the city

Southsea: Ideal family life in the city

Families are often one of the groups that people would be least likely to expect to see living in city areas, mainly because they tend to be busy, loud, and heavy with traffic, leading many parents to find them not conducive to bringing up children.

However, some cities are in fact filled with attractions and amenities that can be seen as perfect for families, and one such location can be discovered by those who are seeking out property for sale in Southsea. The area is located in the city of Portsmouth in Hampshire, and is situated in a serene spot by the seaside.

With a population of just 18,000, Southsea can be seen to be a smaller settlement where there will be a great deal less traffic and noise pollution, making the area a great place to live and bring up kids without the fear of many cars.

Its location, just one mile outside the city centre, also makes the area ideal for commuters who do not want to live within Portsmouth itself, and means that a short drive or bus journey to work each day will be simple and effortless.

For the kids, most parents will want to make sure that the schooling system in any area they move to is suitable and adequate. The town is served by no fewer than nine schools across all age groups, as well as the local university, which mean that parents can see their offspring enjoy their entire educational career within the region.

As well as work and school though, the area also has much to offer within the city. With numerous department stores around the area, it means that those looking for a bit of retail therapy on a weekend will not need to travel into the city itself to do so.

And with a large green area, Southsea Common, nearby, parents and kids alike will always find something to do, whether it be walking as a family, or taking part in one of many events such as the Southsea Show, or the annual kite festival.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801474830-ADNFCR
