Gurnard's main street features a pub (Portland Inn), Doughty Newnham Chartered Surveyors office, a few shops and a few houses. The west end of the beach is Gurnard Marsh and a stream called "The Luck" which discharges into the Solent.
A fortification known as Gurnard Fort was built on a headland west of Gurnard Marsh about 1600. The land was eroded, however, and all traces disappeared until an archaeological excavation of a Roman villa in 1864 uncovered traces of Gurnard Fort as well.
