With a rich maritime heritage, Portsmouth was once considered “The World’s Greatest Naval Port”, and its history can be traced back to Roman Britain. It is also the United Kingdom’s only island city, being situated primarily on Portsea Island. With a busy naval base and a football club who share the name ‘Pompey’, there is lots to do in this coastal city situated in South Hampshire.
