Sitting on Portsea Island, historic Portsmouth has a proud naval heritage but it’s also a modern, forward thinking city with a strong tech industry, great shopping and excellent transport links.
The city was the primary embarkation point for the D-Day landings in 1944 and again played a major part in preparing the fleet that sailed to the Falkland Islands in 1982. The home of the British Navy, it now houses the Mary Rose and Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory. The quays also play a major part in the city’s nightlife and shopping with a number of popular places to eat, drink and shop.
Portsmouth has a busy and varied events calendar, there are a wide selection of festivals throughout the year celebrating music, beer, food, comedy as well as Portsmouth’s seafaring routes. The city’s museums and historic sites are well worth a visit, there are also heritage trails and listed buildings around ‘Pompey’.
Sports fans are well-catered for, several golf courses will help keep enthusiasts in the swing, while Pompey FC have had mixed results since time spent in the top flight of English football.
The marinas and quays are popular with locals and visitors while the city’s standout landmark, the Spinnaker Tower, is a must if you have a head for heights.
Despite its island routes, Portsmouth is well-connected. Regular direct trains to London Victoria take 1 hour 27 minutes. By car the route off Portsea is the M275, connecting with the M27 just off the junction for the M3 for the M25 and London. The closest airport is at Southampton, 25 minutes away.
