Portsmouth Crasswell Street MS
Portsmouth used to be a vital naval port, and although the town has quietened down considerably since those heady days it still offers its visitors a lot of attractions, especially if they’re interested in naval history. Most of the main sights are centred in the city’s ancient dockyard and are known collectively as Portsmouth Historic Ships. The Mary Rose, Henry VIII’s flagship, is here, as is HMS Victory, on which Lord Nelson was killed at Trafalgar.
The D-day Museum is another must-see in Portsmouth. The Overlord Embroidery is on display, a fabulous piece of needlework commissioned in 1968. It took five years to complete and is longer than the Bayeux Tapestry! On the north edge of the harbour area stands Portchester Castle, the best example of Roman sea defences in Northern Europe. Unfortunately, though, the Romans didn’t build many parking spaces in Portsmouth, and spots are at a premium, especially in the summer.
However, NCP’s Portsmouth car park at Crasswell Street MS is conveniently centrally located, and it’s pre-bookable, which makes it the perfect place to leave your car when you go off exploring.
