Portsmouth's Millennium Promenade
Follow the Renaissance Trail along Portsmouth's Millennium Promenade. Starting at Spur Redoubt in Old Portsmouth, follow the chain effect paving through Old Portsmouth, into Gunwharf Quays and along to the Historic Dockyard. Interpretation panels along the way will give you an insight into the area's fascinating history. (Please note - in order to complete the trail you currently need to leave Gunwharf Quays once you have reached the Spinnaker Tower - walk towards the Historic Dockyard and you will pick up the trail again after the bus, coach and train station.)
