As the UK’s only island city, Hampshire’s Portsmouth has a lot to offer for every kind of getaway. Wherever you find yourself on Portsea Island, you’re never more than 10 minutes from the seaside by car.

If nature’s more your thing, the Farlington Marshes is the perfect place for a short walk, with plenty of coastal wading birds to admire. Further afield, you’ll find the South Downs just a short drive away, offering over 600 square miles of rolling hills, vast expanses and natural beauty.
