Portsmouth is the South Coast’s Great Waterfront City, offering a great mixture of heritage, culture, and modern venues
Portsmouth is a dynamic and vibrant waterfront city, offering a fantastic blend of modern and traditional, with a massive variety of entertainment and cultural landmarks for your attendees to enjoy while at your event. Portsmouth is unique in that it is the only island City in the UK.
With a population of nearly 240,000, Portsmouth is one of the most densely populated Cities in the UK. It’s compact size means getting around Portsmouth is easy. Being relatively flat, it’s easy to walk or cycle pretty much everywhere. However, if speed is essential, the City is served by a comprehensive public transport network, including bus routes across the whole City, 5 mainline train stations, and four major taxi firms (including Uber). Portsmouth has over 2,600 hotel bed spaces, with dozens of smaller B&Bs supplementing this supply.
Portsmouth International Port combines domestic and international ferry crossings with a bustling cargo port and cruise ship port of call. With crossings serving the Channel Islands, France and Spain, Portsmouth Port has the easiest access and most routes for ferries to these destinations.
