Make the most of your ship's stop in Portsmouth. Why go elsewhere when there is so much to see and do in the great waterfront city?
Although cruise lines offer some great excursions, we recommend you spend a day in Portsmouth - you can see more and travel less, making the most of your precious time.
The city provides a handy shuttle bus service for passengers wishing to explore Portsmouth. The regular shuttle stops at the City Centre for shopping trips and at The Hard for visits to The Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and Gunwharf Quays.
Follow the Millennium Promenade walking trail from The Hard into Southsea, where more delights await. Miles of seafront promenade and gorgeous green spaces surround the D-Day Museum, Royal Marines Museum, Southsea Castle, Blue Reef Aquarium and Victorian pier. In Southsea you'll also find a host of independent boutiques, antique stores and unusual retailers.
The Mountbatten Leisure Centre is the city's premier sports facility.
