Just like its name indicates, Portsmouth is a port city on the south coast of England and has a rich maritime history. HMS Victory, a maritime museum is still one of the most famous maritime museums in England. The city is home to Charles Dickens’ Birthplace Museum of the acclaimed novelist Charles Dickens. Aside from that, Portsmouth City Museum and Art Gallery, Portsmouth Cathedral, Royal Navy Submarine Museum and Emirates Spinnaker Tower are among the attractions of the city. With a weekend relaxation in Canoe Lake and visiting tea rooms with friends and discussing a class paper, Portsmouth is a peaceful city for students to gain experiences and enjoy their student life.
