Portsmouth

Portsmouth’s my hometown. It’s on the south coast of England, about 100 km from London. The port is a Navy base, and it’s also a fishing port, a continental ferry port, and a container port. Many tourists come to see the old ships like the Victory, the Warrior, and the Mary Rose, and a lot of tourists come to go sailing. There’s a stony beach and many small parks. Portsmouth is very flat so it’s good for cycling. Summer is the best time to visit. The evenings are long and there’s usually a cool sea breeze. There’s a big university so there are many students, and so there are many cheap, good places to shop around Albert Road and Fawcett Road. There are some big shopping centers around the harbor. It’s very cosmopolitan. There are restaurants of every kind, but I like the pubs and Indian restaurants on Albert road the best. They’re fantastic, yum!
