Gosport has a number of retail areas, from the more traditional offer of the High Street with its bustling Tuesday and Saturday market, to the specialist retail areas of nearby Stoke Road and the coastal market town of Lee-on-the-Solent.

Gosport Town Centre

Perfect for relaxed shopping, the Town Centre has an interesting blend of smaller shops and cafes, offering choice and personal service, as well as major high street names. Largely pedestrianised, the High Street provides a safe environment for a family-friendly shopping experience in close proximity to the Ferry and Gosport waterfront. The Town Centre is also home to the fantastic Discovery Centre and Gosport Gallery, and plays host to a number of civic and community events throughout the year.

Every Tuesday and Saturday the High Street bustles with a busy street market. From clothing, arts and crafts, flowers, cards to local produce, the market is an attraction for residents and visitors alike. In addition to the regular market, which runs from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm on Tuesdays and 9.00 am to 4.00 pm on Saturdays, specialist markets are also held at different times during the year. Make sure you check out our Events page for more information on upcoming specialist markets and events in the Town Centre.

Stoke Road

Just a five minute walk from the Town Centre is Stoke Road, offering a wide range of specialist and affordable retail outlets.   Including a large Waitrose store, perfect for your everyday shopping requirements, the road is also home to a range of long-established retailers and new independents.


The seaside town of Lee-on-the-Solent has a popular and thriving High Street. Not only is there a good range of essential services (banks, a pharmacy and a post office), the town also benefits from an independent butcher, greengrocer and fishmonger.

With a wide range of cafes and restaurants, many offering spectacular views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight, a trip to Lee-on-the-Solent High Street offers a leisure experience all of its own. Combine with a visit to the beach or the nearby Hovercraft Museum and you have a day out of fun for all the family.
