Cruises from Portsmouth
The great waterfront city of Portsmouth is located on Portsea Island on the southern coast of England. It is the UK's only island city. Fast becoming Britain’s favourite waterfront destination, it has an irresistible mix of history and heritage, shopping, lively arts as well as great restaurants and bars. A significant naval port for centuries, Portsmouth is home to the world's oldest dry dock still in use.
The most fortified in Europe with a network of forts circling the city, most of Portsmouth's tourist attractions are related to its naval history. A visit to the Historic Dockyard where are found: the D-Day museum, Nelson's flagship HMS Victory, the remains of Henry VIII's flagship - the Mary Rose, HMS Warrior - Britain's first iron-clad steamship - and the Royal Naval Museum, is an absolute must.
