Gunwharf QuaysView map
Everybody needs an outlet in life
ancy snapping up bargains on designer labels, enjoying lunch overlooking the Solent, catching a film in the cinema and kicking back with cocktails in a trendy bar – all under the same roof? Then Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth is made for you.
There are nearly 100 designer outlets, 30 bars and restaurants, a 14-screen cinema, 26-lane Bowlplex, Highlights comedy club, and Tiger Tiger nightclub. Yes girls, that means you can leave your fella to entertain himself while you browse at Ralph Lauren, LK Bennett and Osprey – and even have your hair done (don’t worry he’ll wait).
This rather exciting complex is set right on the water, overlooking the bustling harbour, within a stone’s throw of the attractive heart of Old Portsmouth. And if you fancy arriving James Bond-style, there’s a marina right in front of the shops and restaurants (how convenient).
If you’re still able to walk with all those bags, why not head to the 170-metre-tall Spinnaker Tower, nearby, to soak up the views of Portsmouth, the Solent and the Isle of Wight?
