We're proud to call the UK's great waterfront city home.

We’re proud to live and work by the port which processes every Jersey potato and Moroccan citrus fruit eaten in the UK, and 70% of our bananas.


We’re proud to be from the birthplace of the British co-operative movement, which saw dockyard workers in 1796 set up a society to offer an alternative to its members and avoid them being ripped off by tradesmen.


We’re proud to be from a place so picturesque that people mistake it for Venice. The Tate discovered in 2003 that two paintings thought to be of Venice were, in fact, of Portsmouth.

We’re proud to be from the place which saw the UK’s first ever floodlit football league match on 22 February 1956. Newcastle might have won the match 2-0, but it was Pompey who made history.


We’re proud to live with over 200,000 people in the UK’s most densely-populated city outside of London, and the 13th most densely-populated in Europe. 

And when you're that proud of where you come from, you shout about it!
