Portsmouth, the Great Waterfront City, is the second largest in Hampshire and is located mainly on Portsea Island. For such a compact city, it has a lot to offer. Famous for being a Naval City, Portsmouth is home to the Navy and the Royal Marine Commandos. Portsmouth offers links to France, Spain and the Channel Islands as well as the nearby Isle of Wight.
The city offers good high street shopping and a boutique and vintage experience on the Albert Road. Designer outlets can be found at Gunwharf Quays - with a Park and Sail option.
Many of the City's tourist attractions are based around the naval history of Portsmouth, and the City has recently proudly unveiled the latest attraction, the Mary Rose Museum.
The City boasts miles of beautiful seafront, a multitude of parks and open spaces, hosting fantastic family events such as the Southsea Show, The Victorious Festival and the Rural and Seaside Show featuring Welly Wanging and donkey rides. Portsmouth attracts touring West End Productions, TV comedians and big name music acts to the various theatres and music venues on offer.
Home of Portsmouth FC (Play up Pompey!), the city is one that celebrates sport and offers a wealth of facilities and opportunities.
