House on the Hill Community House (Portsmouth)

House on the Hill welcomes Service families based in Drayton, Portsmouth and the surrounding area to enjoy a range of facilities, events and activities.

Your community hub

The Community House aims to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere that offers families a sense of belonging and mutual support in a warm relaxed environment.

Actively engaging with the community can provide a really important social outlet and even help you to develop a support network among other Service families. If you are interested in getting involved or perhaps setting up a group as a volunteer come down and join in with your community.

HMS Chiddingfold returned alongside at HMNB Portsmouth. She was greeted by friends and family of the current serving crew.


On top of all the events that run from House on the Hill, there’s also a range of facilities for you to use, including:

  • Activity Room
  • Kitchen
