If you happen to travel to the UK, do visit the city of Portsmouth. Portsmouth is the regional capital of the New England coastal area. The city with its origins in the 16th century is a walk-able seaport where you can stay, eat, shop and explore art and culture. Walk around the crumpled decks of the harbor.
We started our visit with old harbor, followed by shopping at Gunwharf Quays which is just along the Portsmouth harbor. Gunwharf Quays is located in the heart of Portsmouth which has a cinema with 14 screens and more than ninety designer stores. Later we ate the Abaristo which is a waterside restaurant. The quality of the food served was amazing and the live light show added to the experience.
- We visited the Victoria Park which houses guinea pigs and birds. The premises of the park comprise a cafe, monuments, and activities for the kids.
- On the next day, we had a booking at the Great Salterns Golf Course. Later we visited The Spitbank Fort. In the evening, we attended the show at the New Theatre Royal.
- We also visited the Cathedral of St. Thomas and St. John’s Cathedral. Visit the Clarence pier was interesting.
- Portsmouth is a literally a photogenic city. Click a lot of pictures of the harbor. Visit Portsmouth Naval shipyard.
- Do try the sustainable yet delicious seafood at Loch Fyne restaurant. The experience at the square tower and Spinnaker tower was notable. Try hang building at Centre VR which is located in Gunwharf Quays itself.
- Nature lovers must visit Statuton Park.
- We took a ferry further to France from Portsmouth Harbor.
The last and best advice I wish to give is that ditch your car as soon as land up in Portsmouth. Your travel experience would be enhanced if you choose to be pedestrian.
