Transfer from Luton Airport to Portsmouth
Portsmouth’s current day cityscape is dominated by modern buildings from the 1980s. The port continues to play a major role for the city. Portsmouth is also the most important ferry port in England thus being the reason why people choose to go from London to Portsmouth Harbor is because of Portsmouth’s ferry port, which was opened in 1976. The plan for its construction was set-up somewhere around the 60’s and three locations were targeted in order to build the ferry port. The final choice was at the end of the just recently built M275 and it was based purely on cost. The expansion of Portsmouth Harbor started with the mid-eighties when all three operators increased their usage of the port. Two additional berths were built in that period. Berth 2 was filled a new Berth 2 was constructed. Berth 3 was completed later on and, with its completion, some of the operators in the Port of Southampton changed their home to Portsmouth Harbor. The expansion continued which led to the construction of Berth 4 and 5. Berth 5 was also the final stage of development as the Harbor went to decline starting with the year 2000.
However, the cargo handling of the 1970s has been moved 30 kilometers away, in Southampton. In 1995, a 130 million € expensive program was set up to transform the old port area. In the center of the project is a shopping mall and the 170-meter high Spinnaker Tower, opened officially on 17th October 2005. The project was completed five years later than planned and costed 30 million pounds more than the original estimate of £130 million. In addition, parts of the port under the name Portsmouth Marina have been converted into a modern residential and business district. The program was officially completed in July 2005.
