Did you know?
- Portsmouth is the second largest city in the county of Hampshire, and is notable for being the United Kingdom’s only island city. As a significant naval port for centuries, Portsmouth is home to the world’s oldest dry dock which is still in use and is home to some famous war ships including the HMS Warrior, the Mary Rose and Nelson’s Flagship HMS Victory.
- During the Second World War, the city was bombed extensively destroying many houses and the Guildhall. Southsea beach and Portsmouth Harbour were vital military embarkation points for the D-Day landings.
- The City and Portsmouth Football Club who incidentally won the F.A Cup in 2008 are both nicknamed Pompey; this is thought to have derived from shipping entering Portsmouth harbour and making an entry into their logs of POM.P.
- Notable people who hail from the City include the authors Charles Dickens & Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Rudyard Kipling writer of the Jungle Book also resided here. Other notable people born here include Sir Isambard Kingdom Brunel, James Callaghan and Peter Sellers who was born in Southsea.
- Portsmouth appears on the oldest surviving route map of Great Britain, the Gough Map, which dates from about 1360, and shows 600 towns and cities. Portsmouth is labeled Portis Mouth and is represented by a single red-roofed building. Estimates of the number of prostitutes working in the port and garrison town at the end of the 18th century vary between 2,000 and 20,000!
- The first league game to be played under floodlights took place on February 22, 1956, between Pompey and Newcastle. Pompey lost 2-0.
