From naval and maritime heritage (one of the largest British military ports), to world-class tourist attractions, museums and galleries, unique shopping destinations, good food and drink, and miles of gorgeous waterfront, Portsmouth offers something for absolutely everyone.
It has many treasures in its port. Eight centuries of fascinating history await the traveler on the ramparts and in the waters where magnificent 19th century ships sleep. But modernity is not banished from the city. The Spinnaker Tower, with its architecture worthy of the 21st century, dominates a city where a lively university life flourishes.
Ideally located on the south coast of England, the only island town in the UK is perfect for a short break by the sea. There are many things to do in Portsmouth, with magnificent museums, live music rooms, contemporary art galleries, two cathedrals, a diverse literary heritage, nightlife, festivals and countless events throughout the year.
Essentially renowned for its naval heritage and port, Portsmouth is also the birthplace of Charles Dickens, the famous writer of Oliver Twist.
