Portsmouth Millenium Promenade
Portsmouth Millenium Promenade

This walk is a total contrast to all the others on this website.  It is on streets, it is an urban environment, but it does have boats so all is not lost.

When I grew up in Southsea, this part of Portsmouth was not a salubrious place to visit.  Today, however, the place has been totally transformed, and this walk was set up to show off all the best bits of Old Portsmouth.  If you walk with a partner keen on shopping, this walk will be popular because it passes through Gunwharf Quays - home of the now famous Spinnaker Tower and a huge outlet shopping complex - you have been warned.

The walk captures all the flavour of Portsmouth's maritime history and is endlessly fascinating - you will be going back for more.
