This weekend I headed down to the city of Portsmouth. The train took around an hour and a half from Clapham Junction with the first part of the journey through snow. I was staying at the Holiday Inn Express at the Gunwharf Quays development. This hotel is very convenient if you want to make the most of the historic dockyard and the outlet village. During the weekend I looked around HMS Warrior, HMS Victory and took a boat tour around the harbour. Several of the new Type 45 destroyers were in port. On Sunday I went up the Spinnaker Tower and had great fun walking over the glass floor – definitely recommended.
