"Great Little City" Portsmouth by Minstrelette

Portsmouth Travel Guide: 284 reviews and 1,389 photos


Portsmouth has wonderful old houses. Several of them are available for visiting (just be sure to check the hours, since most aren't open very often).

Cute shops

Portsmouth is an easily walkable city. Be sure to check out the side streets (like this little alley) or you might miss a bookstore or gourmet shop.


For a small city, there's a lot of artistic things to do here- galleries, music concerts, theatre, etc. Check The Wire (a weekly paper) to find out what's going on when you arrive.
