"Portsmouth" Portsmouth by jayhawk2000

Portsmouth Travel Guide: 312 reviews and 766 photos

We first visited in June 2000 and again in September 2001 on our way to Normandy. Christian's father lives on the Isle of Wight, so we've been trying to visit the area once a year. Winchester and Chichester are nearby and well worth a visit as well.

This is a photo of a doorway in the old town of Portsmouth.

Portsmouth has Britain's single most important collection of historic ships and naval memoribilia.

    Old docks and vessels surely sound interesting - thanks for the history info.

    I love your presentation of the history of the docks. It was a fine read. Thank you.

    Portsmouth has always had that maritime significance. Obiviously a lot of history here with these wonderful vessels. 3 for 2 sounds good as does the harbour cruise. Good ferry service.

    Glad to see a page about Portsmouth - I love visiting that city. And attending Pompey games (while they were still 1st Div).
