Where to go
If you love naval history, enormous ships and a museum-studded city, then Portsmouth is the place for you. With the world's oldest dry dock, being home to infamous ships such as the HMS Victory on which Lord Nelson died during the Battle of Trafalgar and with the Royal Navy Museum, Britain's only island city is a place with a rich naval legacy which continues today. If culture is more your thing, then Portmouth has a plentitude, especially at the beautiful Guildhall where incredible music and theater can be found throughout the year. Whether you visit the amusement park Clarence Pier or hike to the top of Spinnaker Tower for a fantastic panorama, Portsmouth is well worth a visit.
