Portsmouth The Essential
Interesting
Portsmouth is Britain's premier seaside town and the town's port has some veritable treasures. Eight centuries of history await the visitor within its walls and on its water, upon which float some magnificant 19C vessels. Modernity, however, is not spurned; the 21C profile of Spinnaker Tower dominates this town of attractions, museums, restaurants and bars.
