A lively waterfront city on the south coast of England, Portsmouth is well known for being the birth place of Charles Dickens, the resting place of the Mary Rose, the HMS Victory, and home to many museums, galleries, events and the Emirates Spinnaker Tower.
Head down to the dockyard and explore Lord Nelson's HMS Victory, once the world's most powerful battleship. Keep things nautical and see the remains of Henry VIII's favorite ship, The Mary Rose, recovered from the seabed to be displayed to the public.
In town, choose from two cathedrals, dozens of museums covering everything from modern art to Charles Dickens to the D Day Landings. There is also a lively music scene here plus two theaters if you want to catch a play while you're in town.
Close by are plenty of beautiful beaches with access to water sports, walking, and cycling.
