At Fort Nelson Royal Armouries Museum, a 20-minute drive from the hotel, visitors can view more than 350 artillery pieces. The museum’s collections trace the evolution of guns from medieval times to the present day. You can watch guns fire and enjoy views of Portsmouth Harbour from the ramparts of the Victorian fortress. Or head underground to explore the fort's maze of tunnels.
At Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, seven minutes' walk from the hotel, visitors can learn how life was and is in the Royal Navy. You can go below deck on HMS Victory, Lord Nelson's flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, and test the hammocks on HMS Warrior, formerly the world's biggest warship. The Isle of Wight ferry terminal is also nearby, so why not hop on board and enjoy a day of exploring?
Don't Go Home Without
You can browse international designer fashion and lifestyle brand outlet stores in the Gunwharf Quays complex. When you’re ready for a pit stop, there’s a variety of cafés, bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a coffee, snack or sit-down meal. Catch a movie at the multiscreen cinema, or if you’re travelling with kids, visit Miniport so they can enjoy a ride in a miniature ship.
Feel like a good laugh? At the Spinnaker Tower, five minutes' walk from the hotel, regular comedy club nights features bills of established stand-up comics. From the tower’s Sky Deck observation platform you can enjoy spectacular views over Portsmouth harbour and the surrounding area. The sail-shaped tower has 570 steps and a lift, but if you're feeling adventurous, why not book to abseil down it?
