Portsmouth

Portsmouth is located on the southern coast of England. It was historically a naval base, and tourist hot spot and has a population of about 200 000. 

The city has beautiful views of the sea, beaches and lots of history.

Portsmouth has two piers, similar to many other cities by the sea. One is home to a small amusement park.

Portsmouth has recently struggled economically. Commuting out of Portsmouth, less tourism and less industry are contributing factors. One key redevelopment is GunWharf Quays, a shopping and restaurants on the water, complete with an observation deck. The development is very well designed and an inviting place to visit.

Portsmouth is a lovely English city along the sea, and parts of it even feel tropical. I would definitely recommend it for a visit!
