Learn about Britain's naval heritage at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, 12 miles from the hotel, where you can board Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory. Afterwards, take to the water with a 45-minute harbour tour, or ride the waterbus to the Explosion – Museum of Naval Firepower in Gosport. Find out about momentous sea battles through the museum's dramatic interactive exhibits.
Watersports enthusiasts can try their hand at sailing a dinghy or paddling a canoe along the nearby Solent or River Hamble. If you're serious about getting your sea legs, sign up for a weekend training course and learn how to handle a yacht. Landlubbers may prefer a scenic riverside walk – in which case, you only have to head four miles to the beautiful Holy Hill Woodland Park.
Head to the top of the 170-metre Emirates Spinnaker Tower, 12 miles from the hotel, for a stunning panoramic view over Portsmouth Harbour and across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. You may feel like you're walking on air when you step out on to Europe's largest glass floor. Down below, there are 90 designer outlets and specialist stores in the Gunwharf Quays shopping centre.
Come face to face with tigers, gibbons and more than 250 other exotic and endangered species at Marwell Zoo, a 20-minute drive from the hotel. Do you prefer close encounters of the cartoon kind? Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park is 25 minutes away by car. While the little ones greet Peppa and her friends, older kids can get their kicks on the roller coasters and other thrilling rides.
