About the city of Portsmouth
Excerpts from the website https://www.visitportsmouth.co.uk/: Portsmouth is a dynamic and vibrant waterfront city packed with great reasons to visit. Ideally situated on the south coast of England, the UK’s only island city is ideal for a short break by the sea. There are lots of things to do in Portsmouth, with magnificent museums, live music venues, contemporary art galleries, two cathedrals, a diverse literary heritage, nightlife, festivals and countless events throughout the year. There’s also Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the UK’s premier destination for Naval History. Inside you’ll find 11 attractions including Lord Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860, the Mary Rose, and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. You can also get out onto the water on the Harbour Tour excursions, or take the waterbus to Gosport to see the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and Explosion Museum.
