Portsmouth is an active port and there’s a naval base located here. There is quite a few places to shop and places to eat. The Naval Dockyard is worth a visit and I’d recommend the harbour tour.

City advice

What to pack

Bring clothes, towels and footwear for using on the beaches.

We take talcum powder with us on visits to the beach as it helps get the sand off your feet after a paddle or fun on the sand. You can check the tide times for the beach online to make sure you can make the most of your visit.
