Setting sail from Portsmouth

Perfectly located on a magnificent harbour on the south coast of England, Portsmouth boasts a rich maritime and naval heritage. In addition, it has a glorious sea front, and theatres, art galleries, cathedrals and museums. The new Spinnaker Tower gives you a fine perspective on the area with stunning views from the top, and an interactive introduction to local history, including the Mary Rose wreck and Nelson's Victory. You can visit the house where Charles Dickens was born, and learn more about D-Day and Operation Overlord.

Don't miss

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard features a number of historic ships as well as some great interactive exhibitions introducing you to the city’s long and rich history. A magnificent day out.
