Transfer from Heathrow Airport to Portsmouth
Although in the surrounding area settlements were established even before Roman times, it is generally believed that Portsmouth was founded in 1180 by Jean de Gisors. Not long after, in 1194, Portsmouth was recognized as a city by King Richard I. At the same time the port was built on the west side of this town. At the end of the 15th century Henry VII named Portsmouth as a “Royal Dockyard” and moved the docks on dry land, making it the first European port of this type. The port became the main naval base for the Royal Navy. In the course of industrialization, many companies settled in Portsmouth to take advantage of this expanding industry.
Even today this port is most popular for being the home of the Royal Navy, HMNB Portsmouth and not only, because during the centuries, starting with the Medieval Era, many picked Portsmouth Harbor as home to their fleets, because of its strategic location. Legends say that the port was impossible to capture if it were to be attacked from the sea.
