Easter is nearly upon us! That doesn't just mean chocolate eggs and religious celebrations - but also an extra-long bank holiday weekend.

The four day weekend is often the chance for people to get away for a short break - having a welcome retreat without having to eat up any annual leave (or the extra savvy ones who book time off around the bank holidays to get a long break without using up so much of their leave allowance).

With the weather forecast looking kind for this year, it's little wonder that many Brits are considering a short break for the Easter holidays. What's more, it seems many of them are thinking of a trip to Portsmouth, at least according to the latest data from Airbnb.

The accommodation website named Portsmouth amongst its top 10 trending destinations for Easter breaks in 2019. By looking at year-on-year figures for destination around the UK, Airbnb discovered a 120% increase in searches related to our island city, putting us in the nation's top 5.

Results like these come as no surprise to those who already know and love Portsmouth. The city has far more to explore in just a day and it really rewards those who stay longer. So this year, why not take the opportunity to spend some time in Portsmouth and get to know it a little better.

In addition to the city's great events and attractions, Visit Portsmouth has you covered with a comprehensive list of hotels, guest houses, B&Bs and more, to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one.

    Thanks for the blog. I’m going to visit Portsmouth next month and will definitely try to visit all of these restaurants. In every restaurant, I love style and creativity. I believe that even small cafes should stand out, at least they should have their own custom prints, like https://mcdonaldpaper.com/butcher-paper-butcher-twine on packaging and equipment for the restaurant to have its own charm.

    Hey! Great suggestion, I would have been in a similar place a couple of years ago. I liked the trip so much that even upon arrival I wanted to do a little gluing. BUT the problem is that the video is of a very old format, which is no longer relevant at all. I found a solution to this problem by downloading this converter. It contains many different formats, and the quality is practically not lost, I will share with you the link https://www.movavi.com/support/how-to/how-to-convert-dvd-to-mp4.html
