Admire the views from Spinnaker Tower

If it’s thrills you’re after, why not try abseiling down the tower?

Visit HMS Victory and Warrior

Portsmouth’s naval past is clear to see throughout all of the city, but perhaps no more so than on its famous ships. Built in 1765, the HMS Victory boasts 5 decks and 104 cannons, all of which have been lovingly restored, and are now waiting to be explored. HMS Warrior was one of the world’s first iron-hulled warships, and is now a floating museum.

Discover the D-Day Story

Extend your trip to Southsea and brush up on your WWII knowledge with a visit to the D-Day Story. Discover their collection of artefacts dating back to the Allied invasion of Normandy, including first aid kits and machine guns, as well as the Overlord Embroidery, which measures 83-metres and depicts the goings-on of the invasion.
