  • Okay shopping. More upmarket expensive stores and restaurants. Spinnaker Tower is a must. Also cinema. Right next to Portsmouth Harbour station so good public transport. Large car park underneath. Extortionate charges. £6 for under 4 hours!!!! Charges even for blue Badge holders the same.
  • Harbour settings are always fun they are quirky with side streets and various types of architecture. The walkways are old too which makes them a little precarious especially for the old set. But messy in parts. But into the quays you enter into a modern world of shopping with high class shops. The Spinnaker tower is well worth the low cost and short lift journey to obtain birds eye view of the Harbour across to Gosport and on clear days possible to see the Isle of Wight.
  • Very clean and a lovely area. But now they are getting rid of cheaper shops and replacing them with all high end so it's a proper designer outlet place. Which is great if that's what you're after, but as a student, I used to visit multiple shops here... now I only go to about 2. So if you have the cash and are wanting clothes/bags/shoes etc it's perfect. Otherwise you've just got the restaurants.
  • Gunwharf quays is great. I mainly visit for the great restraints, cinema and bowling! It's beautiful to visit with views on to the harbour. Very close to Portsmouth Harbour station (2 min walk) and lots of underground parking available. I also love the little events that go on during the summer like the little fair
  • Fantastic choice of designer shops and restaurants in the most beautiful of settings. From shopping to boat trips, or a tour of the Spinnaker Tower, there's everything you could wish for within close proximity. It's modern and clean, with easy parking. Whether you're single or a family, there is something for everyone here. A very lovely place, and I can't praise Gunwharf Quays enough.
