Portsmouth's harbour districts are a delight to wander around, with surprises around every corner.

Top on everyone's list of destinations are the Historic Ships in the Royal Naval Base at the end of Queen Street. The complex comprises of the famous naval vessels HMS Victory and HMS Warrior (Britain's first iron warship), as well as the Mary Rose Museum (featuring the wreck of a Tudor warship) and Action Stations (an interactive simulation of life aboard a modern naval frigate). For more naval intrigue head across the water to Submarine World on Haslar Jetty in Gosport, which includes a guided tour inside HMS Alliance, or to Spitbank Fort, an offshore bastion of granite, iron and brick little altered since its construction in the 1860s.

Old Portsmouth, based around the original harbour, preserves some Georgian and a little Tudor character such as the Cathedral of St Thomas on the High Street, a fifteenth-century wall protecting the Camber, and the Round and Square Towers, which punctuate the Tudor fortifications, are popular vantage points for observing nautical activities.

The suburb of Southsea boasts an impressive 16th century castle as well as several military museums such as the D-Day Museum and the Royal Marines Museum. Elsewhere around the city are 'The Bunker' tunnels, the Great Ditch, and The Beacon of Fort Widley and 393 Commercial Rd, birthplace of Charles Dickens.

The city's outstanding ancient monument lies six miles north of the centre. Portchester Castle was built by the Romans in the third century and is the finest surviving example in northern Europe. Its walls are over twenty-feet high and incorporate some twenty bastions. Later, a castle was built within Portchester's precincts by Henry II, which Richard II extended and Henry V used as his garrison when assembling the army that was to fight the Battle of Agincourt.
