Portsmouth has always been famed for shipbuilding and its naval links, a history it is proud of and which can be seen in attractions around the city. This is still very much true today, with defence being the city's biggest industry.
For many years, the economy in Portsmouth has relied upon ship building and the Royal Navy, and this is still often the reason that corporate travellers come in need of serviced apartments in Portsmouth today.
Portsmouth is, quite literally, the nation’s naval city. The UK’s only island city, its number of parks and excellent green spaces are surprising, considering the density of population. What maybe isn’t surprising is that business travellers staying at serviced apartments in Portsmouth can enjoy a huge variety of museums, visits to HMS Victory and the Mary Rose, the Clarence Pier Amusement Park and Blue Reef Aquarium. And this is before you even consider the nightlife and Portsmouth’s eclectic music scene.
SITU’s apartments give our clients easy access to the historic Portsmouth waterside, while combining the sort of comfort and security that only serviced apartments can give.
