Schepens Can Help With Home Removals Portsmouth
Known as Pompey to the locals, Portsmouth is a perfect a slice of British trading history. Henry VIII first recognised its importance by founding the British Royal Navy here in 1527. Roll on to the 21st century and Portsmouth is still one of the UK’s busiest ports. Only now its most regular visitors are cruise liners and passenger ferries, rather than trading vessels and war ships.
If you’re moving to Portsmouth you’ve every reason to be excited about the potential it provides. The university city brings a new influx of students into the city each year, and the newish Gunwharf Quays makes it a paradise for shoppers.
Here’s a rundown of some of the other benefits of living in one of the busiest cities on the south coast.
1. The Traditional Seaside is Close By
If ever you need a rest from the 21st century, the Victorian seaside resort of Southsea is just a stroll down the promenade. There’s a castle, a pier, beach huts and large green spaces which are home of community events and lazy picnics throughout the summer. The shops in Southsea offer a great range of independent brands and eateries, in comparison with the High Street shopping available in Portsmouth.
2. History is so Close You Can Touch It
The historic dockyard sits at the heart of the Portsmouth waterfront, cheek by jowl with Gunwharf Quays. It’s home to an extraordinary collection of historic ships which can be explored and experienced first hand. Just a few hundred metres up the road is Old Portsmouth. Wander the narrow cobbled streets, past beautiful Georgian houses, and you could believe you’ve travelled back in time.
3. You’re Well Connected
Portsmouth’s a perfect location for travellers. The city’s located on an island jutting into the channel – it feels like an open invitation to hop over to the continent. There are regular ferries to the Isle of Wight, and over to Cherbourg, Le Havre and Caen. Somehow, living in Portsmouth expands your sense of travel, and makes our small island seem just a bit bigger.
