Portsmouth in the south of England


overnight stay in portsmouthAs the second largest city within the Hampshire county in the south of England, Portsmouth has a long and illustrious history associated with it. What makes Portsmouth such an attractive destination for tourists across the world is the fact that it is the sole island city of UK.

Shop at the city centre Cascades shopping mall, with its range of high street stores. Take a trip to Southsea to visit Gunwharf Quays, a premium retail outlet village where you can browse more than ninety shops before enjoying a meal at the harbour’s edge. Situated on one of the country’s busiest shipping channels there is always plenty to see as large cross channel ferries head off to Europe and smaller ferries weave their way across the Solent to the Isle of Wight, for among the Cowes Week summer sailing regatta.

You might even, on occasion, experience the impressive sight of a naval aircraft carrier entering port. If you are looking for a traditional seaside holiday, then head for Southsea with its miles of sand and shingle beach. Enjoy a walk along the elegant seafront promenade or visit the amusements on Clarence Pier or South Parade Pier.

For children, the Blue Reef Aquarium offers close up views of sharks, graceful rays and even a giant octopus. The Model Village and Butterfly House are popular attractions, while during the summer, Southsea Common is host to circuses, the renowned Southsea Show and an annual Kite Festival.
No visit to Portsmouth and Southsea would be complete without investigating its fascinating naval history.

Buy a ticket to the Historic Dockyard and tour Henry VIII’s pride and joy the Mary Rose; Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory and Britain’s first iron clad warship HMS Warrior. Stand on the walls of Southsea Castle just as Henry VIII did as his fleet embarked in 1545. Prepare to be impressed by the D Day Museum Overlord Embroidery, inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry and charting the history of World War Two.

Immerse yourself in the history of the Royal Marines at their Southsea museum, and don’t forget to look out to sea where four Victorian forts were built to protect England from invasion by Napoleon.

If you are passing through Portsmouth en route to the continent, you will find several low cost hotels in the north of the city around the ferry port. These are also ideal if you are planning a mini-break and you want to explore both Portsmouth and Southsea.

If a traditional beach holiday is your choice but a seafront hotel is not in your budget, cheap accommodation options abound if you explore the surrounding roads in Southsea itself. With guest houses, bed and breakfast and hotels across the city, there are choices available to fit every budget.

The city of Portsmouth is located just 64 miles from London, meaning that it is only a short car ride away for individuals looking to engage in the authentic UK experience.

Southsea Seaside Resort Town


Among the various attractions that Portsmouth has to offer, is the beautiful seafront resort area of Southsea. Located on the south end of Portsea Island in Hampshire, the luxurious resort is just a mile away from the bustling Portsmouth city centre.

Over the years, the seaside resort has turned into a thriving commercial and tourist destination particularly due to the numerous shopping options as well asrestaurants located within it.

Southsea is also known for its vibrant nightlife culture, making it the perfect destination for more outgoing tourists.

The Piers

Tourists visiting Southsea are first recommended to brush up on the resort’s history. The beach is made primarily of gravel, and consists of two piers – the Clarence Pier and the South Parade Pier. The two piers are most commonly known for housing large amusement arcades.

Southsea plays a prominent role in the city of Portsmouth’s history, and this is typified through the presence of four forts originally constructed during the late 19th century. The sea facing town also consists of a beautiful walkway, lined with unique lanterns, created on the cusp of the millennium, that extends all the way to the Gunwharf Quays.

Tourists traveling with children can also find a number of popular miniature golf courses, skate parks and tennis courts within the area. Additional three volleyball courts were also created here.

D-Day Museum

No tourist visiting Southsea can leave without at least a short visit to the D-Day Museum. The museum is known particularly for housing the beautiful Overlord Embroidery, created as a tribute to the brave soldiers who gave their lives for the country during Operation Overlord.

The masterpiece is 272 feet in length, and remains the largest memorial of its kind across the entire world. Tourists are also urged to view the short film created by the museum itself paying tribute to the men and women who participated in Operation Overlord.

Shopping

When it comes to shopping, Southsea has two shopping districts sitting adjacent to each other. The first of these is located near Palmerston Road’s pedestrian walkways. Tourists can purchase clothes and other products from global brands or relax at the numerous cafes in the area.

The second shopping centre is located near Albert Road, which is also home to the famous Kings Theatre. Tourists who wish to take a break from shopping can do so by taking a stroll down the scenic walkways that run all along the area.
