Portsmouth, or ‘Pompey’ as it is fondly known by locals, is the second largest city in Hampshire, sporting a waterfront café culture and proud naval history.
Famed for its maritime past, Portsmouth is home to a world-class collection of iconic ships, from the Mary Rose to Nelson’s HMS Victory.
The harbour itself has undergone a dramatic transformation in the past decade as part of a regeneration scheme to reinvigorate the local economy.
The Spinnaker Tower, erected in 2005, typifies this injection of new life and contains a viewing platform offering magnificent views over the harbour, adrenaline fuelled activities and splendorous eateries.
There is so much to see and do in and around the city and tourism thrives across the beaches, piers, amusements and seaside parks.
Gunwharf Quays also has one of the South’s biggest and best discount shopping centres with over 90 designer outlet stores and 30 bars, restaurants and coffee shops to choose from.
As a university city there is also a thriving nightlife with lots of old school watering holes. Albert Road is the Indian curry strip equivalent of London’s Brick lane and offers an extravagant number of late night dining options.
For a trip further afield, regular ferries depart daily for France and Spain, making the rest of Europe accessible via a short journey over the Channel.
The only scheduled hovercraft operator in the world takes passengers to the Isle of Wight in a few minutes where there are two major festivals (Isle of Wight and Bestival) held during the summer attracting the best names in music.
On the downside, Portsmouth is quite staggeringly even more densely populated than London, which can lead to high traffic congestion on the island.
It is however a great deal cheaper in terms of property prices and the cost of living and the plethora of good quality schooling options is well worth taking into considering when weighing up your move.
Despite Portsmouth’s dense population there are a plenty of vacant jobs on the market. As the UK’s royal naval base, Portsmouth’s primary industry is in the maritime field, with around 10% of the workforce being employed in the dockyard and a large portion of ex-Navy personnel taking jobs in the city.
Outside of this the biggest employers in the city are IBM Europe, Portsmouth University and the Queen Alexandria Hospital.
The city is continuing to grow with the council introducing new measures to advance the engineering and high-tech industries, which promises to attract further talent in the future.
For those venturing further afield for employment, Southampton, the next biggest city in Hampshire is an easy commute via the M27 and rail links. London is also accessible by train and takes around 90 minutes.
There is a good mix of infant, junior and high schools to choose from, with Portsmouth High School, St Johns College, Admiral Lord Nelson, Priory and Charter Academy all performing well and well regarded by Ofsted, the State regulator for education.
Portsmouth Grammar School is also considered to be one of the best schools in the country.
With over 23,000 students and 2500 staff, Portsmouth University has a solid reputation as a first class provider of higher education and provides degrees in a wide range of disciplines, with excellent job prospects.
Portsmouth’s housing market is diverse with the vast majority of homes sold last year being terraced properties on the island part of Portsmouth. Although prices are generally more affordable than London, they are rising at a faster rate than those in the capital for the first time in over a decade, according to property analyst, Hometrack.
Across the board, average asking prices in Portsmouth are around the £238,000 mark, and you do get a lot for your money. You can pick up a one-bedroomed flat for as little as £69,000, a three bedroomed terrace for £100,000 and some very well-appointed detached homes from £440,000.
According to Zoopla in November 2018, property prices have seen a slight decrease in value of 0.27% over the past year.
Portsmouth is also a very good area for the buy to let market due to the large student population attending its university.
Those looking to rent a one bedroomed apartment in the city centre can expect to pay around the £345 per week for a one bedroom flat and up to £3200 per month for a large 8 bedroomed terrace home.
