Visiting Portsmouth?

Bring some sunscreen for starters, because this seaport town gets quite a bit more summer sunshine than the rest of the UK. It’s also the only island city in the country, which translates to a milder climate, so dress appropriately. Many who travel to Portsmouth enjoy the amazing views from the sail-shaped Spinnaker Tower, an architectural salute to the city’s nautical roots. It’s the tallest structure in the UK, outside London, that visitors can walk up. Have a great time in Portsmouth. It’s hard not to!
