Portsmouth

Portsmouth’s enviable waterfront, connection to major transport routes and rich maritime heritage, makes the city an ideal place for marine and maritime related business.
Owned and operated by Portsmouth City Council, Portsmouth International Port has grown extensively over the decades to become the country’s most successful municipal port. It is also becoming an increasingly popular destination for cruise arrivals and departures.
A modern terminal and dedicated facilities for cruise customers provides the perfect location for passengers keen to explore the city's world-class attractions, right on the doorstep.
Portsmouth is also considered to be the UK’s best connected, and second busiest ferry port with a dedicated motorway junction, close to the main shipping channels and deep water access.
