Travellers and activities

Portsmouth for boat lovers

Sailors, yachtsmen and sea lovers have an important event to attend to every year. We are talking about the America’s Cup World Series racing. This is the F1 on water! The Ineos Team UK is based in Portsmouth and takes part in this important race. In 2017 the boat race was in Portsmouth. Whenever a boating event is held in this port, it attracts thousands of boat lovers. But do not worry, if you do not have your own boat you can rent one, you can feel like a real racer too while sailing away in the ocean. This port city offers great boat tours on yachts and splendid days out in the sea.

Portsmouth for festival lovers

As we have said, Portsmouth is a port city with lots of events happening. One of the most famous one is Victorious Festival at the end of August. Three days of music for all the family with stunning line ups will make you enjoy every second of it. There is also a literature festival, Portsmouth Bookfest, to celebrate its literary heritage. The kite festival is an annual celebration with more than just kites. It is a great marketplace and meeting point, being a firm favourite amongst Asian tourists. See it for yourself!

Portsmouth is nicknamed Pompey and it is the UK’s only island city thanks to the narrow Portsea creek separating it from the mainland.

Top 5 travel tips in Portsmouth

1. Get your coffee in the clouds

Visit the Emirates Spinnaker Tower and get to the top of this prominent tower soaring 560 feet above the Solent. The tower is just on the waterfront, at Gunwharf Quays. From the observation deck you will get stunning views of the city, the harbour and the Isle of Wight. Walk the glass-floored Sky Walk and explore the interactive touchscreens. Now it’s time for a nice cuppa or a delicious coffee up above, at “Café in the Clouds”. Enjoy a superior coffee!

2. Practice some sports in the city

The great outdoors of the city invite you to run around and put your sporty skills into practice. Green areas, fantastic sport facilities and plenty of watersports to choose from are some of the options you have here. Are you up for a 10k run? Take part in the Great South Run. If you prefer smaller events, a 5k one or any of the marathons and triathlons organised throughout the year are your best bet. Not everything is about practising sport. You can catch a game at Fratton Park, home to Portsmouth F.C. Enjoy a football match and feel the vibes every minute of the game.

3. A step back in time

Portsmouth is alive with history. The Historic Dockyard and the famous ships, the connections between the city and Sherlock Holmes, the historical works of Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle while they lived there are just a few things you can learn about this fantastic city. You can step back in time and discover the stories about Southsea Castle, built by Henry VIII and from where he watched his beloved Mary Rose sank into the ocean. And for some information about the Allied Invasion during the WWII head to the D-Day Story, a museum with unique and personal stories about that epic moment.

4. Take the city on foot

Are you into history but need someone to tell you more details about it? A guided tour is the best option! Take a guided walking tour around the city. Choose from Spice Island and discover the story of The Point. Follow the steps of the Admiral Nelson on the Nelson Trail Walk or discover Charles Dickens story and visit the museum dedicated to it.
