Portsmouth Cathedral & Old Town

Portsmouth Old Town & Cathedral

Monday 13 May 2019

Portsmouth Cathedral, the Cathedral of the Sea, has for centuries watched, listened and helped the people of Portsmouth navigate the passage of time. It has witnessed wars and peace, famous marriages, been bombed and rebuilt and remains a building of greatness and simple enduring beauty.

Our visit to Portsmouth will start in the morning at the The Land Gate where we shall meet our guide who will take us through Old Portsmouth close to the route that Nelson took the day he left England for the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.

There will be a break for lunch at extra cost so some may wish to bring a picnic.

In the afternoon a Portsmouth Cathedral guide will show us around  the Cathedral.

The tour will start at Wilton Park & Ride where you can leave your car all day. Our coach will give an opportunity for Arts Society members to chat on the way to Portsmouth. Ticket cost of £30 will include transport and two guided tours.
