Backpacking / gap year Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture Visiting friends or family

Customer Travel Tip: If you want to party at clubs to go Tiger Tiger, Liquid and for bars go to the Guildhall walk. There are some really English old pubs in Old Portsmouth that have traditional beer and food. Shopping is on "the high street" its a walking street in town and the Gunwarf Quays.

Disliked: You can see Portsmouth in a day and a half its more interesting if you actually live there.
