Portsmouth: One of the favourite attractions to visit in southern England is Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard, home to some of the most famous ships in history, such as Henry VIII's favourite ship, The Mary Rose, and the Royal Navy's most famous warship - HMS Victory, and HMS Warrior, Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured battleship. Add to this the fascinating Mary Rose Museum, The Royal Naval Museum and the new interactive attraction Action Stations
Each year thousands of visitors enjoy the pleasures of the waterfront with it's fine selection of bars and cafe's. They also appreciate Portsmouth's superb shopping facilities
Portsmouth also has beautiful parks and refreshing open spaces. For art lovers there is a choice of galleries, these include the Artists Harbour Gallery located in the Dockyard area, and there is an Arts Centre in the City Library. As for museums, you can explore 12 museums within a short distance of each other each with its own unique display.
Atractions: For modern day attractions, look no further than impressive Spinnaker Tower which at 170 m high has changed the skyline forever. The tower is the tallest tower outside London in which visitors can rise to a dizzy 110 m, whilst enjoying fabulous sea and coastal views. It is the the centre of Gun Wharf Quays, an outlet mall with over 90 outlets for a little rretail therapy.
On a cultural note, the City has strong literary ties; it was the birth-place of Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Connan-Doyle practised medicine at Southsea where he wrote his first Sherlock Holmes novel and H.G.Wells worked in a drapers shop on the corner of Kings Road. Engineering genius Isambard Kingdom Brunel was born in Portsmouth in 1806.
Couple all this with cinema's, theatres, pubs and restaurants with a wide choice of exciting cuisine and you have a recipe for a really special visit be it a flying weekend or a longer stay.
The summer season offers numerous additional activities for kids and adults
Southsea: Southsea is a seaside resort located within the naval town of Portsmouth, is an all year holiday destination. It boasts a 4 mile long promenade with views across the Solent. The centre of Southsea is within a mile of Portsmouth's city centre. Southsea also has a vibrant social scene with numerous bars and eateries which cater for a range of budgets and tastes.
There are two piers: South Parade Pier and Clarence Pier; both house amusement arcades. Clarence Pier is adjacent to a permanent funfair.
Just off the seafront is Southsea Model Village which is a 1/12th scale model village with forty miniature buildings, houses, forts, castles and a miniature railway. It was opened in 1956 on the site of a Victorian fort. Another part of the fort has been converted into Southsea Rose Garden.
Canoe Lake is topped up from the sea at high tide. Crabs and fish find their way in and attract children fishing equipped with a piece of bacon on a string. In summer pedaloes can be rented.
