My mum and her two sisters are visiting Portsmouth in October for a Wedding but will be staying an extra day...any ideas of how to best spend their time and places to eat..cheap but spotlessly clean..they are V.Fussy ..and I do mean extremely.
Gunwharf Quays has loads to do. Shopping, cinema, Spinaker Tower, lots of restaurants. Some very expensive, some average & some really good price. They are all sparklingly clean down there. However if they are going 1/2 term week probably best to be avoided.
Southsea shopping is a bit grim in parts (but that's really on the main shopping precinct), but has quite a few boutiquey places & little coffee shops & restaurants. (Mostly independent apart from Costa).
