The Victorian High street offers a diverse selection of retail outlets including many independent stores.

Located where the rivers Avon and Severn join the Bristol Channel, which has the second highest tide in the world. This enables large ships to pass close to land at Battery Point on route to the nearby docks at Portbury and Avonmouth. ln the early 19th Century Portishead was developed as a seaside resort, an escape from the city life in Bristol. This saw the development of the lake grounds and promenade overlooking the channel to Wales where young and old still enjoy recreational activities today.

The town boasts both a summer outdoor pool and all weather indoor pool, nice pubs and restaurants, a weekly market (Friday in the Poacher car park) and a monthly farmers' market (located in the Waitrose Piazza).
