The Palmeston Forts Surrounding Portsmouth
The historic Palmeston forts that surround Portsmouth hold a unique stage in history and some are availble to view. Both seaborne and land based they offer an historical day out with Spitbank Fort in the Solent and Fort Nelson overlooking the harbour on Portsdown Hill the most popular.
Portsmouth is home to the Emirates Spinnaker Tower which is 560ft tall and weighs 30,000 tonnes. Not only can you ascend to the top viewing platform but you can also abseil down it!
There is no better way of seeing the harbour than getting on one of many boat trips around the Naval Base and see all the warships alongside and gain knowledge from the onboard commentary. Or take a helicopter ride and see it all from the air alternatively there are many walking tours as well.
