It has the finest maritime heritage in the world located in the historic dockyard, including world-famous ships HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose. The iconic Spinnaker Tower presides over Gunwharf Quays which hosts a variety of retail outlets, restaurants, clubs and bars.

Portsmouth City Council is here to shape our great waterfront city, so it’s a great place to live and work, making the most of our amazing natural assets and supporting a unique and vibrant culture. Portsmouth is a city that is going places, and we are working with our partners to encourage £1bn of investment, creating opportunities for our residents and a sustainable economy for the future. Also we make sure our residents can then make the most of the opportunities the city has to offer, by supporting those who are most vulnerable and encouraging independence, and by encouraging our population to be safe and healthy.
