The UK's only island city stands alone when it comes to maritime and naval heritage. Stretched along miles of historic dockyard, it offers a step into the past with every footstep - visitors can explore over 800 years of seafaring tales, from the Mary Rose to HMS Victory. Away from the water's edge, Portsmouth offers a lively town centre with modern shopping malls, outstanding theatres, music venues, art galleries, two cathedrals, and loads of pubs and restaurants.
