    6 Quirky Facts About Portsmouth

    1. It’s Officially Old
      Not only is Portsmouth mentioned in the Doomsday Book, the city (named as ‘Portis Mouth’) is one of 600 places to feature on the UK’s oldest known map, dating bating to 1360 and is also recorded in the Anglo-Saxon chronical of 501AD as ‘Portes Mutha’.
    2. War of the Wells
      HG Wells spent time living in the city but described his time there as, “the most unhappy, hopeless period of my life”. No wonder he decided to write about an alien invasion!
    3. Not Miserables
      Despite what HG thought, Portsmouth is actually a very happy city, having said that it was one of the locations used for filming Les Miserables.
    4. Skinny Street
      Messum’s Alley was originally called Squeeze Gut Alley by locals due to its narrow width.
    5. Mutiny on the bounty
      The ill-fated Bounty set sail for Tahiti from Portsmouth before the crew “got the hump” with the ship’s master Captain Blythe and dumped him overboard.
    6. Just Like Venice
      In 2003 two Turner paintings of Venice were examined at London’s Tate Gallery which discovered the subject of both paintings was actually Portsmouth.

    About Portsmouth

    About Portsmouth

    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.

    Leisure

    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.

    Transport

    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.
