Spithead is an area of the Solent strait between Hampshire, England and the Isle of Wight so named from a sandbank extending from the shore of Hampshire. In the opening of Mr. Midshipman Hornblower, this is where Hornblower first joins HMS Justinian and becomes seasick while Justinian is at anchor.

In Hornblower and the Hotspur, Hotspur is anchored at Spithead while fitting out for its mission to Brest as the Peace of Amiens comes to its end.
