As well as a very popular way of remembering loved ones, memorial seats are a gift to the city which can be appreciated by others.

Due to the popularity of seat donations within parks and open spaces, we are currently unable to accept any new requests whilst we review the sites where additional seats may be offered in future. We appreciate every donation that has previously been made, but now have more than enough seats to cater for visitors in our parks, gardens and countryside areas such as Portsdown Hill.

Memorial seats

Due to the upcoming changes to the seafront by the new coastal defence scheme, we regret that we cannot install any new memorial benches along the seafront promenade for the foreseeable future.
