Portsmouth

'''Portsmouth''' ( south east of Southampton. The city has a population of 209,166 and is the only city in the United Kingdom with a greater population density than London. The City of Portsmouth and Portsmouth Football Club (Portsmouth F.C.) are both nicknamed "Pompey".

As a significant naval port for centuries, Portsmouth has the world's oldest dry dock and is home to some famous ships, including HMS ''Warrior'' (HMS Warrior (1860)), the Tudor carrack ''Mary Rose'' and Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS ''Victory'' (HMS Victory) (the world's oldest naval ship still in commission). Although smaller than in its heyday, the naval base remains a major dockyard (HMNB Portsmouth) with the headquarters of the Royal Marine Commandos. There is also a thriving commercial cruise ship and ferry port serving destinations on the continent for freight and passenger traffic.

Portsmouth forms part of the South Hampshire built-up area (South Hampshire) which also covers Southampton, Havant, Waterlooville, Eastleigh, Fareham and Gosport. With an estimated 860,000 residents, it is the 6th largest urban area in England (List of urban areas in the United Kingdom) and the largest in South East England.,

The Spinnaker Tower, a striking recent addition to the city's skyline, is located in the former ''Vernon'' naval shore establishment (HMS Vernon (shore establishment)), now redeveloped as an area of retail outlets, restaurants, clubs and bars known as Gunwharf Quays.
