    Portsmouth is on the outskirts of UK and one of the famous tourist attractions in the UK. The climate is good and people are very nice to you. There are enough international shops to cater the needs of every student. We have good rail, road and sea connectivity. The atmosphere is mesmerizing.

    Portsmouth is an amazing city with everything at walking distance. The public transport is good as there are 3 train stations and 2 coach stations.
    There are multiple shopping areas with affordable shopping and the high end shopping in Gunwarf Quays.

    Nightlife is mostly in the centre which makes living here perfect as the other bits of the city are more quiet.
