Well, why not? I don’t live in a beautiful city, but it is at least a very historic one. It’s the school summer holidays here, and we had the opportunity to go and visit the sights.
We do at least have a landmark now, the Spinnaker Tower. Worth a visit on a clear day as the views are pretty good. First up was HMS Warrior in the Dockyard. A couple of years ago I went to Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua, which was a beautiful setting. Admiral Lord Nelson of course had a few gigs over here too.
And finally the Mary Rose, which as we all know was Henry VIII’s warship built in 1512. It’s seen better days though…(sorry, couldn’t resist)
This concludes the short tourist information segment on my home town. Come and visit!
