Spend the day taking in Portsmouth’s soaring city sights

Portsmouth, Hampshire

With great restaurants, entertainment, accommodation and a super-relaxed atmosphere, there has never been a better time for a break in Portsmouth.

Start your city break with a visit to the iconic Spinnaker Tower, soaring an amazing 170 metres over Portsmouth harbour, dare yourself to walk on the glass floor, enjoy the amazing panoramic views and treat yourself to 'really high tea' on View Deck 2.

Soak up centuries of history with a walk through Old Portsmouth, stop off at one of the neighbourhood’s many waterfront hostelries and sit outside to watch the ships go by as you enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.

Find out what life was like in Tudor, Georgian and Victorian times with a visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, take a boat trip around Portsmouth Harbour for a close up of the current navy or, for the more adventurous, an exhilarating rib ride on the Solent.

In the evening, catch a show or live music performance at one of the city's many venues.
