Business English training in Portsmouth, Great Britain

Lively, cultural, sporty, open-minded…it won’t take long to fall in love with Portsmouth!

Over the course of centuries, Portsmouth has stood out from the crowd with its incredible maritime heritage. The city that goes hand in hand with the Royal Navy is located on the English south coast, a few knots from Southampton and three hours from London by train. The D-Day landings left from here and its historic port now harbours HMS Victory, best known for her role in the Battle of Trafalgar. No wonder Portsmouth has a passion for regattas which take place here every year in the summer.

Well-positioned between the past and the future, the Spinnaker Tower dominates the horizon like a lighthouse at the port entrance. The fashionable Gunwharfs Quays surrounding the Tower is home to numerous designer boutiques and lots of activity centres. But let’s not forget that Portsmouth is also a great place for culture. The city, which was the birthplace of one of Charles Dickens and became Conan Doyle’s second home, also hosts countless museums and historic sites.

Shoulder to shoulder with its neighbours Brighton, Bournemouth and Worthing, this top sea resort has 50 kilometres of beach facing the peaceful Isle of Wight. A wide range of pubs, sophisticated cuisine, theatres, cinemas and lively night life make it a very popular destination for visitors of all backgrounds and cultures. Sport is also important here: Portsmouth is the location for the Great South Run and is home to some of Britain’s most scenic golf courses!

The cherry on the cake is that there are 3 train stations and 4 ferry routes in this city of 200000 inhabitants, making the ideal starting point for visiting Southern England’s most beautiful places!
