Why not turn your Jumbo Day into a Jumbo Weekend!

Come to Portsmouth the day before Jumbo Day and you could visit any of the 12 museums covering all aspects of Portsmouth’s past; visit the Maritime attractions including HMS Victory, HMS Warrior 1860 or The Mary Rose. Or admire the stunning views from Portsmouth’s newest landmark, the Spinnaker Tower. Or spend your day at the award winning shopping and leisure complex, Gunwharf Quays – with over 20 cosmopolitan bars and restaurants. There are reasonably priced hotels nearby, so you can be ready nice and early for The Jumbo Day itself on Sunday.
