Royal Haslar Hospital – Past, Present & Future (Event from 2017)
Royal Haslar Hospital, Haslar Road, PO12 2AA – Meet at The Gatehouse
Royal Haslar Hospital was the first proper naval hospital in the country, receiving its first patients in 1754, and much later became the hospital for all service personnel and for Gosport. After much local protest, it closed in 2007.
The development plans are to retain and enhance everything of heritage significance, heal the scars of the late 20th century and construct new buildings to complement the old ones.
Guides from the Haslar Heritage Group will lead tours of Haslar grounds, pointing out buildings of unique architecture, telling of its rich history and illustrious military background, and also explaining the future roles this special heritage site will eventually offer.
Tour will last approximately 90 – 120 minutes
- Saturday 9 September: Tour 1000 & 1330
