The Queen’s Hotel, situated in Clarence Parade, was built back in 1861 by architect Augustus Livesay and it was formerly known as Southsea House. The venue was originally created to serve as a large private home for Sir John and Lady Morris but in 1865, when tourism began to blossom, the house was converted to a hotel - and it has become an iconic landmark in Southsea.
