Portsmouth is a port city in Hampshire, England, with a total population of 205,400 residents. The city of Portsmouth is nicknamed Pompey and is mainly built on Portsea Island, a flat, low-lying Island measuring 24 square kilometres (9 sq mi) in area, just off the south-east coast of Hampshire. Uniquely, Portsmouth is the only island city in the United Kingdom and is the only city whose population density exceeds that of London.
Portsmouth is one of the world’s best known ports. HMNB Portsmouth is considered to be the home of the Royal Navy and is home to two-thirds of the UK’s surface fleet. The city is home to some famous ships, including HMS Warrior, the Tudor carrack Mary Rose and Horatio Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory (the world’s oldest naval ship still commission). The Former HMS Vernon naval shore establishment has been redeveloped as a retail park known as Gunwharf Quays. Portsmouth is among the few British cities with two cathedrals: the Anglican Cathedral of St Thomas and the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St John the Evangelist. The waterfront and Portsmouth Harbour are dominated by the Spinnaker Tower, one of the United Kingdom’s tallest structures at 560 feet (170m). Nearby Southsea is a seaside resort with a pier amusement park and medieval castle.
