"" Portsmouth Favorite Tip by hayward68

Portsmouth General: 28 reviews and 60 photos


Fondest memory: Portsmouth was a place I'd always wanted to visit, as my Dad was based here with the Royal Navy before I was born. So it was very interesting for me to see this city, especially since my older brother was born in the area.

We arrived in Portsmouth about 3pm and immediately went wandering around doing some sightseeing. Eventually we checked into our bed and breakfast, a lovely place right near the water, then headed for the pubs. There were 3 within 200 yards of the B&B. It had been a beautiful, hot, sunny day and now we were ready to relax. We bought a few pints of beer and sat ourselves down on the patio of the Spice Island Inn. From our vantage point we could see the ferries going back and forth in the harbour and military planes flying overhead. We sat for a long time relaxing as the sun slowly set. It was such a peaceful time and one of the best parts of our trip.
