Portsmouth’s Pubs


Look at the 1867 1:500 County Series map* of The Point and the area around St Thomas’s Church in Old Portsmouth and you can count at least 30 public houses and taverns. These are all on a sheet covering a little over 38 acres, and much of that is water! Portsmouth has a long history of pub building and this excellent site provides a great guide to both exisiting and closed pubs. The inclusion of many archive photographs makes it particulalry interesting.
