The UK’s coolest city has an ‘amazing food scene’ but a ‘tonne of tourists’

Portsmouth was named the second coolest city in the UK and could be the perfect spot for a coastal staycation.

The team said: “Portsmouth packs a whole lot of history into a relatively compact city. Set on Portsea Island, the city is home to a historic cathedral, medieval sea defences and row upon row of heritage houses where once upon a time there was a pub on every corner.”

Nomad Nations highlighted Gunwharf Quays, an outlet shopping destination and designer haven.

Tourists could also take a ferry over to the Isle of Wight for the day and Portsmouth is just a one hour journey from London.
