Local Information

Portchester is a locality and suburb 10km northwest of Portsmouth, England. It is part of the borough of Fareham in Hampshire. Once a small village, Portchester is now a busy part of the expanding conurbation between Portsmouth and Southampton, on the A27 main thoroughfare.

The fort of Portus Adurni is considered the best preserved Roman fort north of the Alps.

Portchester is of partly Roman origin, from Latin portus (a harbour) and Old English ceaster (Roman fort). The medieval Portchester Castle was built within the fort.
