Spend some time in an English city that is bursting with maritime history and enjoy fun-filled explorations of the surrounding coastal areas when you book great-value car renal in Portsmouth.
Portsmouth offers much more than a city break. Use your vehicle to tour the coast and the gorgeous Hampshire countryside...
The historic naval city of Portsmouth has plenty to offer visitors. Located on an island, there is no escaping its rich maritime history. The Portsmouth Dockyard, Henry VIII's ship the 'Mary Rose', the Gunwharf Quays and the Port Solent Marina all attest to its seafaring importance.
Portsmouth has a very mild climate even in winter, which makes it a great place to visit at any time of the year. Many of the maritime sights are outdoors but there are also plenty of museums in Portsmouth. There is an interesting City Museum as well as a Natural History Museum. The Royal Marines Museum is also worth a visit, as is the Easteny Beam Engine Museum located in Southsea. It is not all museums, however - the Pyramids Centre in Southsea is a great family destination thanks to its pools, flumes and soft play centre.
Another benefit to Portsmouth is its connections. Many ferries leave from the city to the Continent or visitors can also take a ferry to the Isle of Wight. Southampton Airport (SOU) is less than 20 miles away and car hire is readily available from the airport, though we recommend picking up your rental car at one of the convenient downtown locations in Portsmouth.
