Portsmouth is a port city in Hampshire, England, with a total population of 205,400 residents. The city of Portsmouth is nicknamed Pompey and is mainly built on Portsea Island, a flat, low-lying island measuring 9 sq mi in area, just off the south-east coast of Hampshire. Portsmouth is the only island city in the United Kingdom, and is the only city whose population density exceeds that of London. Portsmouth is one of the world’s best known ports. HMNB Portsmouth is considered to be the home of the Royal Navy and is home to two-thirds of the UK’s surface fleet. The city is also home to famous ships, including HMS Warrior, the Tudor carrack Mary Rose and Horatio Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory (the world’s oldest naval ship still in commission). Many of the city’s former defences are now museums, or venues for hosting events. Several of the Victorian era forts on Portsdown Hill are now tourist attractions. Portsmouth has several theatres: the New Theatre Royal in Guildhall Walk near the city centre, which specialises in professional drama, and the newly restored Kings Theatre in Southsea, which features amateur musicals as well a number of national tours. Another theatre in the area is the Groundlings Theatre, which was built in 1784 and is housed in The Old Beneficial School, Portsea.
