Where to visit in Portsmouth

 Where to visit in Portsmouth 

I figured that as I live in Portsmouth, I should probably write a little about it. I moved to Portsmouth when I started university in September 2013, as I have now been here nearly two years, I have naturally learnt where’s good to visit, and where’s not so good to visit. When I say to people back home that I live in Portsmouth, they instantly think how it’s a bit of a s***hole, whether they are polite enough to say it or not. This blog is basically just saying stuff you, and look how beautiful it can be, if you go to the right places of course!

Spinnaker Tower
This is probably one of the most well known points of interest in Portsmouth. It is quite an amazing looking building (looks quite similar to the ‘Burj Al Arab’ in Dubai). I have some wonderful memories up Spinnaker Tower, firstly, my boyfriend took me here on our first date (he can be romantic), and another time I went up with my friend who was visiting me from home, unfortunately we were rather hungover and it didn’t seem to help. Luckily there is a café on the second floor, which sold water for us, as well as: tea, coffee and cakes for the non-alcoholics. The views are absolutely stunning once you reach the top of the tower, looking across the whole of Portsmouth, Gosport and Isle of Wight.

Southsea is an area in the south of Portsmouth. Within Southsea you can find many cute boutique shops, cafes and a few high street shops such as Debenhams in the small shopping center. Not far from this shopping center is the sea front, with ice cream stalls, fish and chip shops and a big green park, perfect for summer BBQ’s. I love going for walks along the sea front, following the stoney beach all the way to Gunwharf Quays.

Gun wharf Quays
This is my favourite place to visit in Portsmouth. It is an outlet retail destination filled with high-end designer shops at good prices, a cinema, bowling complex, many bars and restaurants, whilst proudly sat on the harbour front. What more could you want? Well maybe on a cold and windy day its not the nicest place to visit, but as summer is coming up, it is a lovely place for a day trip and has a train stop right next to it. Perfect. 

Garage Lounge
This is a cute, hip little café in Southsea, which I especially love. It can be quite pricey, but in return you can receive amazing cake and hot chocolates! I often go here for a little treat after a day of university with my boyfriend. 

Have you got any Favourite place to visit in Portsmouth? Please let me know, I love visiting new places I may not have known existed right on my doorstep!
