Portsmouth Harbour Guide

The English city of Portsmouth is located on the south coast of England, in the county of Hampshire. It is the UK's only island city and is situated around 100 km to the south west of London and 30 km to the east of Southampton. The city's long history is inextricably linked to the sea. It is home to the oldest dry dock in the world still in use and also to famous ships such as HMS Victory, Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, the Mary Rose and HMS Warrior. The city is also home to the Royal Marine Commandoes and to a naval base.

The city's port is one of the best connected ports in the United Kingdom, serving nine different destinations. To the south of the Naval Base, you will find the Isle of Wight (Ryde) Passenger Ferry Terminal. The Continental Ferry Terminal is served by ferry services to Le Havre in France and Bilbao in Spain. There are also daily crossings to Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo in France, St Helier in Jersey, St Peter Port in Guernsey and to Ryde on the Isle of Wight.


Ryde Guide

Ryde is the largest town on the Isle of Wight and is often referred to as the "Gateway to the island" due to its prominent position along the shores of the island and its hovercraft and passenger ferry links to the English mainland. Visitors to the town enjoy its lovely sandy beaches which stretch the length of the town, its boutique shops, museums and galleries. As the island's largest town it comes as no surprise to learn that it is also the venue for some of the island's largest annual events. For example, every August bank holiday thousands of scooter enthusiasts descend upon the town for the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally, and just a few weeks later the town's esplanade can be seen draped in classic cars for the International Classic Car Show. Ryde is also home to one of the United Kingdom's oldest carnivals which usually takes place at the end of the summer and forms the end of the Isle of Wight carnival season which travels all over the island. Ryde’s collection of late night bars and clubs also tend to make it one of the most popular spots for nightlife.
