Albert road is packed with INDEPENDENT TRADERS who sell unique, alternative and inspiring gifts all year round. Albert Road has a big heart and is the creative and fun place to work, shop and play in the City. It’s a treasure chest of Antiques, Arts and Crafts, Retro, Games and Model shops alongside Hairdressers and Beauty Saloons. In addition there are many bars, café’s and restaurants covering a wide variety of food from around the world.

Over the years Albert Road Independent traders have raised thousands of pounds for Charities such as CHILDREN IN NEED and BRAIN TUMOUR to name but a few.
Collectively we have gained awards from Portsmouth City Council, Awards for All, Arts Council of England, Love Your Street and Waitrose to help the regeneration of Albert Road.

Annually we hold a number of community events with our partners to raise awareness of Albert Road and the Community it serves. Daisy Chain, being one of the most resent events.

Switching of the Christmas lights Christmas in Albert Road is always a special event. It’s a time to embrace the Kings Theatre PANTO season to meet Santa and the Phoenix elves who entertain the children along with a Kings Theatre Youth Group and a host of other dancers and singers all locally sourced.
