“Portsmouth is a great town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

Market Square is the center of this historic era-seafront town. Streets and house are narrow and charming beginning from water front. Many nice pubs and historic site nearby.A delight.

“Something for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

Portsmouth is such a great place to tour. You can stay in town and walk anywhere you want to go. Eclectic shops and really great restaurants. I go at least once a year and always have a good time.
