An excellent interactive walking tour of this beautiful historic town. Our guide, a local, was extremely knowledgeable of the area and its history, having been born and brought up in Portsmouth. I enjoyed every minute of the tour and would highly recommend it to anyone who visits Portsmouth.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minute walking tour offered along with the short movie (view before or after the tour). Lots of interesting history shared on the tour. Good pace.

This FREE visitors center has much to offer including helpful staff, several display galleries and a nice gift shop. Take 12 minutes to watch the short film on the history of Portsmouth which is a terrific introduction to the town. Staff will start the movie upon request, so no need to wait around for scheduled showings.

The people that work there have a fountain of info on things to do and see in Portsmouth. There’s also an art display there. Should definitely be a first stop in Portsmouth.

Bottom Line: Helpful guide and small gift shop/art gallery.

Details: We stopped in for some info on our visit. The guide was very helpful in recommending sites and giving us directions via a map. Very glad we stopped here first.
