Portsmouth is located on Portsea Island, which is actually a peninsula. The town is bordered by Portsmouth Harbour on the west and Langston Harbour on the west. There are substantial cliffs on the peninsula and offshore islets are quite rocky.

Hampshire County is undulating, finely wooded, and fruitful. Its coast line is very irregular, the principal indentation being Southampton Water. From Surrey and Sussex, north-east to Wilts and Berks, two ranges of chalk hills, known as the North and South Downs, traverse the county. In the west is the New Forest, and in the south-east are the Forests of Bere and Waltham Chase. The Avon, Exe, Test, Itching, and Hamble are the chief rivers in the area. The county is noted for its agriculture, the wheat of Hampshire being especially prized. Upon the Downs are reared large flocks of the variety of sheep known as Hampshire Downs or 'short wools'. Pig breeding and the curing of bacon have long been large and lucrative branches of the county's industry. The mineral resources are meagre; and, except in large coast towns, such as Portsmouth and Gosport, the manufactures are also unimportant. The shipping, however, is very extensive.

Portsmouth is also within easy reach of Southampton, Bournemouth and Poole, all of which are popular south coast destinations. Portsmouth is also the chief ferry port for reaching The Isle of Wight.
