Fall in Love with Portsmouth
Portsmouth is a hugely significant city in Britain’s history. It has been a naval port that can be traced back to the Roman Empire. Steeped in military history, it has played a pivotal role in many English wars. From serving as vital, first-line defence against the French Invasion in 1545 to acting as a landing for D-Day during the Second World War. By the 19th Century, Portsmouth was regarded as the most fortified city in the world. It is also a booming hub for trade and business as the second-largest port in the United Kingdom.
Based in Southern England, it is truly unique in being the only island city in the UK. It is home to the oldest dry dock and many famous ships such as the Mary Rose, made during King Henry VIII’s reign. Portsmouth still plays an active naval role as a dockyard for the Royal Navy even today.
