About Portsmouth

With a population of 238,800 as of the most recent count, Portsmouth is the city in the UK with the highest population density. The city is 19 miles southeast of Southampton and 70 miles southwest of London. Portsmouth, the only English town outside the British Isles, is mainly situated on Portsea Island. After the islands of Great Britain and Ireland, Portsea Island has the third-highest population in the British Isles. Additionally, Portsmouth is a part of the Southampton metropolitan area and Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Havant, and Waterlooville boroughs.

One of the most well-known ports in the world, Portsmouth has a long history dating back to Roman times and has served as a significant Royal Navy base and dockyard for many years. On May 2, 1194, Portsmouth received a royal charter to become a town. During the Battle of the Solent, which is famous for the sinking of the ship Mary Rose and was witnessed by King Henry VIII of England from Southsea Castle in 1545, Portsmouth served as England's first line of defence. The Great Stone Dock in Portsmouth, initially constructed in 1698, was rebuilt in 1769 and is now known as "No. 5 Dock," the oldest dry dock in the world.

At the naval base's Block Mills, which made pulley blocks for the fleet of the Royal Navy, the first mass production line in history was established. Portsmouth was known as "the world's greatest naval port" at the height of the British Empire during the Pax Britannica. It was the most heavily fortified city by the early 19th century. In preparation for an invasion from Europe, a ring of defensive land and sea forts known as the Palmerston Forts had been constructed by 1859 around Portsmouth.
