We take a wander around the historic port city of Portsmouth which is well known for its historic dockyard and maritime heritage. Portsmouth is home to HMS Victory, Nelson’s ship in the Battle of Trafalgar, HMS Warrior 1860 and the Tudor ship Mary Rose which is conserved in a dockyard museum. Unfortunately it was too busy to visit these attractions during our visit so hopefully we will get the chance again sometime.
We did however get to visit the Emirates Spinnaker Tower which provides fabulous views over the port and harbour and across the Solent. The attraction also features a glass floor some 100 metres above sea level!
Another popular attraction is the outlet shopping area of Gunwharf Quays. The area features an array of designer shops and brands selling stock at discounted prices as well as waterside bars, cafes and restaurants.
We enjoyed a walk around the old town and along the seafront to Southsea, whilst watching the many vessels entering and exiting this busy port.
