About the neighbourhood
Portsmouth is a unique island city, surrounded by the Solent and little more than 2 miles across, its waterfront life, whether historical or modern is never far away. Seafaring has shaped our local history and the sea still adds to the life of the city today; sailing, yacht racing - Fastnet and Cowes - diving and water sports attract many visitors every year.

Visit the Spinnaker with its stunning panoramic views, the Historic Dockyard steeped in maritime tradition or treat yourself to a shopping spree at Gun Wharf Quays Shopping Village with over 85 designer outlets. Dine al fresco and watch the comings and goings of the busy harbour or just enjoy a leisurely walk along the Esplanade.

Portsea Island is flat so is a cyclists dream and the cycle paths and lanes, while not perfect, do exten...
