    "This island city has an extraordinary history as a naval port, writes Steve McKenna.

    Connected to the "mainland" by bridge, off England's (at times) gloriously sunny south coast, Britain's only island city is a 90-minute train ride from London. Fittingly, however, for a place with such a rich maritime heritage, many visitors arrive by sea.

    Granted its Royal Charter by King Richard the Lionheart in AD1194, Portsmouth is the home of the British Royal Navy, and a vibrant passenger port that welcomes ferries and cruise ships from France, Spain and beyond."
