Getting Around Portsmouth

Because Portsmouth is a city on the water front, a lot of the points of interest can be found within walking distance clustered together for a nice sea view. Once you get into the harbourside of the city, it’s pretty easy to traverse Portsmouth by foot – and this way you’ll see all the hidden gems along the way!

If you’re looking to go a little further afield or from one end of the city to the other, Portsmouth, like any other major city, has very useful transport links to access. Trains run constantly around the city, one of the busiest being a train line that will take you from main central station to Gunwharf Keys shopping centre.
