Portsmouth is a historic naval city, principal port of the British Navy and home to the world’s oldest dry dock. Home to Lord Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory and Henry VIII’s Mary Rose, salvaged from the Seabed in 1982, Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard is not to be missed, along with the D-Day museum, while the UK’s tallest publicly accessible building the Spinnaker Tower is Portsmouth’s latest attraction. The vibrant Gunwharf Quays situated on the harbourfront, has a plethora of shopping and dining options, while further down the harbour Old Portsmouth offers cobbled streets, atmospheric pubs and a small but interesting cathedral.
