Portsmouth Harbour Guide

Portsmouth Harbour is a big natural port in Hampshire in south England. It has Portsea Island to the east, which is home to the city of Portsmouth, and Gosport on the mainland to the west. The Roman Portchester castle also sits to the north and was the original fortress which was built to protect the harbour. Many visitors wishing to explore the area pick up car hire at Portsmouth Harbour.

The Solent here, which is reached from the habour, is well-known for being the base for HMNB Portsmouth and the Royal Navy. This is mainly due to its ideal position along England's south coast where it is protected by the Isle of Wight. There are also many nice beaches in this area which can be explore by cheap car hire at Portsmouth Harbour.

Now the harbour acts as a commercial ferry port, with services to the Channel Islands and the isle of Wight, as well as to various locations in France. You can board many of these vessels with car rental at Portsmouth Harbour and enjoy a day out somewhere different.

Also easily reached from Portsmouth Habour is the city of Southampton. Here you will find a good amount of nightlife, mainly thanks to the student population, and a busy city centre. Those who are wanting to shop while away should head to one of the city's major malls where you will find everything under one roof.

Also nearby is the seaside town of Bournemouth where you will find the longest stretch of golden sand in Britain. The fact that it is dredged up from the bottom of the sea should not put you off, as this is a great place to relax when the weather is good.
