Best Things To Do & Days Out In Portsmouth

Fascinated by the sea? Any boat or maritime lover will be happy with the great things to do in Portsmouth.

Walk through 800 years of British Naval history at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Entry ticket includes the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, HMS Alliance and much more. See where Nelson celebrated the HMS victory and learn about how they built the ships and why they docked there.

If the museum has given you a taste for life at sea then go over to the Miniport Portsmouth Historic Dockyard for a ride in an electric powered ship. No ticket required, sail around this 70m square pond, surrounded by history of the seafarers that have come before you during Portsmouth family days out.

Back on dry land get the best view of the harbour from the top of the Spinnaker Tower. At 170 metres tall, you’ll feel like you’re floating above the world on the glass-bottomed deck. There’s also a café and an open air viewing deck right at the top for the very brave!

When your feet are finally back on the ground you can choose between the Blue Reef Aquarium where you can watch sharks swimming above your head and meet amazing animals, or take a trip to Portsmouth’s Natural History Museum, which tells the story of all the things that live along the riverbank.

Alternatively, continue your exploration into history and dive into the Royal Navy Submarine Museum to discover life beneath the waves!
