After a final hearty breakfast, we make our way home. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, we continue homewards.
Portsmouth is a dynamic and vibrant waterfront city packed attractions and a rich heritage. From the pomp and ceremony of its proud naval and maritime heritage, to towering world-class visitor attractions, museums and galleries, unique shopping experiences, great places to eat and drink along with miles of beautiful waterfront, Portsmouth offers something for absolutely everyone. It also happens to be the UK's only island city and its famous inhabitants include Charles Dickens, who was born here and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling who were both frequent visitors.
Make sure you also make time to visit Southsea Castle, one of King Henry VIII's most famous fortifications. It's from the castle's vantage point that Henry is said to have watched the sinking of his flagship vessel, the Mary Rose. The ship was to remain at the sea bed for 437 years, until it was raised and put on an intensive conservation programme. Now, the ship takes pride of place at the centre of its very own museum, where visitors can now see the ship in all her glory - even going through an air lock to breathe the same air.
Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is reputed to be the UK's premier destination for Naval History. Inside you'll find 11 attractions including Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860 and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. You can also get out onto the water on the Harbour Tour excursions, or take the waterbus to Gosport to see the Royal Navy Submarine Museum and Explosion Museum.
Not forgetting, of course, what is fast becoming the modern emblem of Portsmouth - the Spinnaker Tower This imposing structure stretches 170 metres into the sky making it taller than Big Ben, the London Eye and Blackpool Tower. On a good day, visitors can see 350 degree panoramas stretching up to 23 miles.
The Cathedral City of Chichester
One of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK, Chichester has played a key role of the affairs of Sussex since at least Roman times. Today, Chichester is the prosperous administrative capital of West Sussex and a great place for shopping, but it's hard to avoid Chichester's links to its illustrious past. Away from the main streets, the quieter historic enclaves of the Pallants, St Martin's Square, St John's Street and Newtown give a glimpse of the eighteenth century, with many fine buildings. Chichester also has plenty of parkland too. Priory Park is the highlight, with the city walls wrapped around the outside of the park, the remains of Chichester Castle and the impressive Guildhall the centerpiece.
Chichester city centre's broad streets are packed with listed buildings, with the list headed by the towering presence of Chichester Cathedral now home to a family of peregrine falcons who can be heard as they swoop over the city at dusk. The pedestrianised city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls and this helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot.
