Portsmouth for New Year

by Waoife

I have a choice - I'm working in Portsmouth over new year and can either go home on the night 31 Dec and return early 2 Jan or stay put.

If I stay in Portsmouth will there be anything to do on New Years Day or would I be better off going home and staying in Portsmouth for a w/e later in Jan?

by orlikins

depends.... i was in Hannover for Paddys weekend this year, but luckily i had Sabsi & a few like -minded workmates to go out on the town while we were there....are you going to be the only person from your work in portsmouth, or will u have some1 with you...cos if you had a colleague with you, i'd say stay in portsmouth and you can go out together, otherwise, i'd say come home.

Travel Tips for Portsmouth


by Jenniflower

We were looking for Langstone University grounds, and we found that the signange formt eh A27 wasn't the greatest.

We were led by our noses and our memory, as we had come here before.

There are also some funny signs around, this sign being one... although it's probably more due to our silly humour that we found it funny!

All minor injuries to go one way.. and obviously if you have a major injury, please go the other way... towards the cemetary ;)

It is not a huge area to navigate around, but it big enough to get hopelessly lost if the signage is all you go by.

Packing List

by jayhawk2000

Lugging bags around is a pain but so few rail stations have luggage lockers these days. If you need to drop your bags for the day in Portsmouth, go to the Victory news agent between The Hard Interchange and entrance to the Historic Dockyard. It costs 1.50GBP for each bag to be locked away next door.

NB: It may be worth checking with the local Tourist Info in advance to see if this offer is still available, there has been a crackdown on these arrangements all over Britain for 'security reasons'.

When in the general area, you are really not too far away from BATH which is worth a whole day of visiting if time allows. Enjoy this 360 deg. panorama. Activate it with your mouse, zoom in or out.

Thai food in Southsea

by jil_coleslaw about Kampan

As my Thai friends told me that the food here is not so authentic as in Thailand, but for me, they are all delicious.

As our friends are Thai, so we had discount. But mostly, it will cost 15-20 pounds per person. But you will have plenty of food.

Take away and delivery service available (free delivery on orders over 15 pounds).

Opening Time:
Sun and Mon 1800-2300
Tue - Sat 1200-1400, 1800-2300 Pud Thai (special fried Thai noodle with Prawns, ground peanut and bean sprout) (6.95 pounds)
Gang Ped Pak (vegatables in red curry with coconut milk) (4.3 pounds)
Kum Pan Poum (chef's mix selection of starters) (8.1 pounds)

HMS Warrior

by Tom_Fields

The battleship HMS Warrior was launched in 1860. At that time, she was the mightiest, fastest, best-armored warship in the world. She had a main armament of 26 muzzle-loading 68 pounders, a crew of 705, and weight of 9,210 tons, Because the Royal Navy enjoyed unchallenged dominion of the seas, she never saw combat.

After only ten years of active service, the Warrior was relegated to the Reserve Fleet. She then spent many years as a hulk, just sitting around. She is the only survivor of all the battleships of that period. Anyone with an interest in maritime history should tour this historic ship.
