A taste of France


There are some wonderous sights here in Portsmouth. Wandering down the many small roads you might be forgiven for thinking that all you see are row upon row of terraced houses but there are a few gems out there. Like this small line of houses in Campbell Road. A sleeping road between roads, tucked away from the main hustle of Portsmouth city.

Very French in style, I would assume they were built in the late 40's after World War 2, as Portsmouth was bombed heavily leaving very few buildings in place (though I may be wrong).

Pastel colours enhance the display and give more of a continental feel and the extremely well presented gardens are simply beautiful to look at. Definately a place to visit if you feel the need to escape the usual red brick former ship workers homes.
