Around The Area
The Royal Maritime Club is conveniently situated near the Naval Base and the Naval Heritage area. The world's most magnificent maritime spectacle awaits you!
HMS Victory, Nelson's Flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar, Henry VIII's favourite warship Mary Rose and the first iron-clad warship in the world, HMS Warrior, are all located a short walk from the club.
Portsmouth Harbour Station, the bus station and Gosport and Isle of Wight ferries are also close by, giving easy access to museums and places of interest on both sides of the harbour. A few miles away the Continental Ferry Port plies its trade to and from the coasts of France and Spain.
Southsea promenade, with its two piers and beautiful award-winning gardens, is also within easy striking distance and includes an opportunity to visit the D-Day Museum, the Sea-Life Centre and a host of other maritime attractions.
Steeped in Naval history, Old Portsmouth with its cobbled streets, ancient buildings and wonderful views of the busy harbour is close by. Continental ferries, warships and all kinds of water-borne transport add to the bustling panorama.
Other attractions in the area include the City Museum and Art Gallery, Charles Dickens' Birthplace Museum and, just across the harbour, The Royal Naval Submarine Museum.
Portsmouth is an ideal base from which to visit places of interest further afield. Try a day trip to the New Forest, Winchester, Arundel Castle or Marwell Zoo. All well worth the effort and each within easy driving distance of the Club.
And at the end of a busy day, return to the Club for a relaxing sundowner followed by dinner in Horatio's Restaurant. All in all, a visit to Portsmouth is guaranteed to be an enjoyable experience. Staying at the Royal Maritime Club will make it a special one.
