Elephant in Scarlet remembers 

The glorious colours of Autumn in Portsmouth. Of course, Autumn is also the season when hurricanes hit the USA and then travel across the Atlantic to hit our shores as storms. None were more destructive in living memory than the Great Storm of the night of 15th-16th October 1987. Let's hope this year is a little quieter.

Elephant in a Cell

The Elephant is proud to live in Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard in Cell No 5. Keep an eye on our website and other social media for our TEA AT THE CELL BLOCK events.
