Living in Portsmouth

Countryside and castles

Surrounded by stunning Hampshire countryside, this coastal city is moments away from the famous New Forest (that features wandering wild ponies) and the wide expanse of the South Downs National Park. For history and cultured days out for all ages, you also have ancient Arundel and its well-known castle, and the beautiful cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury in neighbouring Wiltshire.

Well connected

To match the modern comforts that new-build houses bring, the M27 travels directly through the north of the city, this connects you to the South Coast as a whole and the New Forest, with Southampton to the west and Worthing and Eastbourne to the east. 

Ideal for commuters looking for a new-home base, Portsmouth has four train stations to choose from with journeys to London taking around two hours, and Brighton an hour and a half. For international travel, Southampton Airport is only a half-an-hour drive away. 

Family-friendly coastal life

For everyday city-sized amenities and facilities, you have Portsmouth city centre on your doorstep, and for a change of scenery, Southampton is an hour’s drive away. Life on the Solent and Portsmouth is bustling yet relaxing, with boats and ships coming and going. There’s an abundance of restaurants and eateries to enjoy, and for weekend adventures you can hop aboard the ferry to the Isle of Wight in about an hour. 

For education opportunities for all ages, the city has an absolute wealth of options available, including more than one ‘outstanding’ rated primary and secondary school – such as Cliffdale Primary Academy.
