Once a small village in Hampshire, Cosham is now a suburb of the much larger Portsmouth. The local station was opened in 1848 by the London and South Western Railway, and today it's a stop on the West Coastway Line from Brighton and Southampton, with journeys to Southampton taking around fifty minutes, and journeys to Brighton an hour and twenty. Additional services run to Havant and London Waterloo, with the journey time to the capital taking around two hours. Cosham High Street, just to the north of the station, is packed with big-name shops and independent businesses, restaurants and cafes. For green space, head in the opposite direction to Cosham Park, a pleasant park with tennis courts and a small play area. Even further south you'll find Hillsea Lido, a 1930s outdoor swimming pool that made an appearance in the classic rock opera Tommy.
