Sparkymarine (part 2) :
"Me! That's my home town. Most of it is a complete cess pit....but the old town and Southsea are excellent. However, methinks you are taking the p!ss out of my city. Would that be a fair assumption on my part? lol! ;o) Edit. Then I shall review my assumption and conclude that maybe you weren't taking the p!ss after all. lmao!"

Dave N :
"Portsmouth is a town on the south coast of England. It's famous for ship building and it's Navy. You can go around the town and see the old battleships and also the old defences. It has a local rival town called Southampton and so a word of advice would be not to wear red and white stripped tops ! It's a really nice town from a historic point of view, and you should find a lot do do there. Oh, and there is a new, great big, shopping centre there now as well called West Quay and so you can enjoy that too ! Hope this helps."
Anti theist :
"It's a city like many others except there are docks. (Military and civilian) There are many university buildings scattered about the city. If you get the chance, get a catamaran (15 minutes) to the Isle of Wight (where i live) it is beautiful. Why don't you try "Google maps" or "Google earth" and zoom in on Portsmouth and the surrounding areas."
spashoe :
"Ciao! Benvuto in Inghilterra (per stembre!!) Portsmouth is a great city with lots to do. try portsmouth.citysearch.com/find/section/portsmouth/bars_nightlife.html that should give you a rough idea but there are lots of websites out there. Have a lovely visit."
David S :
"Portsmouth is a medium size town in Hampshire on the south coast of England about 70 miles from London. Its main claims to fame are as a naval base and the birthplace of Charles Dickens. Otherwise its a fairly ordinary place with the usual shops, cinemas and suburban houses. A short ferry ride from Portsmouth is the picturesque Isle of Wight, with its beautiful coastal scenery, quiet small towns; it is a popular place for day trips and holidays"
barbara c :

Does anyone here live in portsmouth especially in the Paulsgrove area if so whats it like.

laplandfan :
"I am near portsmouth. I would say that paulsgrove is what we would call a rougher area to live in. Crime higher than average. Housing average prices. Put it this way, I would not live there."
planetmatt :
"Paulsgrove is one of the biggest council estates in Europe. Now council estates arent nesacarily a bad thing but this one is awful. It isnt actually on Portsea Island but on the mainland on the Northern side of the M27. It is about 4 miles from the actual city center. It is low income, high unemployment, high number of people claiming benefits, low education, high crime, high drug use, lots of underage single mums, chavs hanging around bus shelters/One Stops, ASBOs all over the place. They also like to form lynch mobs every now and again and chase the peaedophiles out of the estate (not joking) I dont know for certain, but I could almost guarantee that half the estate has featured on the Jeremy Kyle show at some point. Most of Portsmouth is nasty small terraced houses with no parking or large Victorian town houses that have been converted into flats.The only decent parts of Portsmouth are Old Portsmouth and parts of Southsea. Gunwharf Quays is ok too."

Southampton is only 7 miles from the Eastern fringes of the New Forest and is sandwiched between Bournemouth and Portsmouth. It is surrounded by the Rivers, Itchen, Test and Hamble and fronts Southampton Water. Southampton is one of Britain’s most historic ports. Southampton services and business directory.
