On deck you have a continuous moving view of the ferries and warships leaving Portsmouth harbour. Alice is 10 minutes walk from Portsmouth Harbour railway station and bus station. It is probably one of the best places to stay in Portsmouth.

The Area

Portsmouth is excellent for all naval sightseeing, the town outside Gun Wharf has great facilities with an excellent beach just at Southsea - 10 minutes walk from Alice. Theatres and restaurants abound close to Gun Wharf - a great place to stay if you are "doing" Portsmouth. Taxis, trains and buses all are centred at the Gun Wharf complex.

What's special about this boat

The best thing is being on board a very large and stable boat in the very heart of the city of Portsmouth with a continuous view of the harbour and all the ship movements and actions that take place so close. Ben Ainsley's Americas cup challenge base is just 200 meters to the south of Alice's berth - you can watch every movement of the America's cup boats in and out of the harbour and watch them being lifted ashore at the end of the day.
