A city surrounded by the sea, Portsmouth’s history is strongly linked with the Royal Navy. The city houses some superb military and maritime museums including Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the D-Day Story and Overlord Embroidery. And for some of the best views of Portsmouth, don’t miss the Royal Armouries Fort Nelson on Portsdown Hill near Fareham.

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is the jewel in Portsmouth’s crown, home to the world famous historic ships HMS Victory and HMS Warrior 1860. Take the ferry across the harbour to Gosport, home of HMS Alliance at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and Explosion! Museum of Naval Firepower.

Together with interactive Action Stations, The National Museum of the Royal Navy and Harbour Tours, plus a fun-packed annual events programme, there truly is something for all ages.

Explore the remains of Henry VIII’s favourite ship at The Mary Rose Museum. The ship was recovered from the seabed in one of the most challenging archaeological excavations of all time. From the large bronze and iron guns to personal items like wooden bowls, tiny dice and nit combs, The Mary Rose recreates life on-board a 16th century warship with an authenticity no other attraction can provide.

Gunwharf Quays is a short walk away from the Dockyard, Gunwharf Quays is a buzzy hotspot and premier waterfront destination, open night and day, with over 95 designer shopping outlets, art gallery, cinema, casino, nightclubs and restaurants with al fresco dining.

The Spinnaker Tower has stunning views over the Solent. On a clear day you can see up to 23 miles over to the Isle of Wight, Chichester and the South Downs. Walk on air on the glass floor if you dare!

Portsmouth’s Old Town

Step back in time and discover the charms of the Old Town and hidden secrets such as Portsmouth’s Anglican Cathedral dating back to 1185.
