Historic Portsmouth walking tour

Join local transport professionals on a guided walk of the historic city of Portsmouth. Delegates will be led to the council's brand new £7m Hard Interchange where they will see 1860s battleship HMS Warrior and take in the Emirates Spinnaker Tower before picking up the Millennium Trail. This natural stone walkway is indicated by a chain motif set into the surface and symbolises a partnership between the communities of Portsmouth and Gosport, past and present. Arriving at The Camber in Old Portsmouth delegates will visit Land Rover BAR - the headquarters of Sir Ben Ainslie's America's Cup racing team, before returning to the Hard Interchange by a Euro 6 Bus.

Places will be limited, so if you'd like to reserve yours, please email
